Thank you Mr. Farish; the pictures settled something in my mind that i wasn't even aware was a question. Will Craig's name is mentioned often here with respect and honor and you folks have continued and grown a monument out of a man's dream.

I was able to witness some of the unselfish sacrifice that makes this website such a great place to spend time, at last year's PM Hunt in Globe. And to see Rajn Cajn humbly accept the 'Will Craig Award' was the highlight of a most memorable week. Thanks again for the pictures.

Great information. Definitely a worthwhile project.

You guys did a wonderful job with the tribute to Will. Although I never got to meet him I know we had a special bond because of our love for predator hunting. I am 51 years old, and it is far too young of an age to leave this world. I did have the pleasure of meeting Matt Craig, and his mother at the 3rd annual hunt, and they were very pleased to see that his PM dream was continuing on. I know that Matt, and his mother have to be proud to see that PM is still continuing to be the #1 predator hunting site with so many members. Long live Will's dream, and God bless you all that continue to carry it on.

Stu, that was a very nice thing that you did. I hope that all will stop in and pay their respects to the man and men and women who have given so much and to a place that we all call home.

To all that work so hard behind the scenes and work their tails off moderating.....THANK YOU.

I don't post much anymore, so little in fact that I never saw this until now.

Thank you so much for this tribute to Will. A man that will never be forgotten.

I do not make predator calls anymore, so please don't ask.

Nice job, that took a lot of work.

Second that, Bad Dawg. I had always wondered the history of how this all got started, so it is nice to see it was born from a truly passionate individual's dream. And it seems to be going strong... RIP Will

One thing of note. I was here from the very beginning as well as the board that lead to Predator Masters. My old brain is a little fuzzy but Jay Nistetter my be able to offer some additional background. If memory serves, it was a progression from The Arizona Predator Posse. I'm fuzzy on the details but Jay can probably offer some insight. This has progressed into more that anyone could have ever imagined. I am very proud to have been involved in it's growth. Will Craig was one of the original and important contributors. He is missed very much.

Sorry, I just can't let this pass.

After Will passed, the moderators (I think there may have been about 30 of us) determined to keep Predator Masters alive. We identified 5 areas which needed leadership, and held elections to fill those positions. I was elected Hunt Chairman.

I contacted the Globe Chamber of Commerce for any useful information. I wrote letters to all motels and rooming establishments for the best deal for our members, selecting one which agreed to give a discount to all our hunters who reserved their rooms in advance.

Then I contacted all the restaurants, for a satisfactory meeting location, selecting one with adequate space and menu. I arranged for us to have exclusive use of a back room for us to gather in each evening, and a major room for our exclusive use for our big meeting the last day.

My wife and I made several trips from Wickenburg to Globe, physically checking out the motel and restaurant, and seeking a satisfactory camping area for those who wanted to camp. We camped in various areas to check the experience. I even contacted the county fairgrounds for some arrangement.

I guess I was some help, but other than discussions about things like the hunt dates, I don't remember anyone else making actual arrangements for the hunt. After all I was Hunt Chairman, and it was my responsibility. To say that I "helped" was a bit insulting.

Sorry for the rant.
