I have many fond memories of watching his show as a kid. It used to get me all fired up to pester my dad to take me fishing. Tony Dean will be missed, my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

That is sad to hear. I've been watching his shows for years. One of the few hosts of a fishing show that just delivered the joy of fishing without the hard product sell. His promotion of the Dakotas as fishing and hunting destinations was unparalleled. I will miss him.

Im very sad to hear this news! My thoughts are also with his family. I will miss him and his show greatly. Probably one of the nicest guys I ever met in the "bussiness". He just had a way of putting you at ease when he talked.

As everyone who ever watched his show knows he was more than a hunter/fisherman. He really worked to improve the envirenment in wich he lived and played. A great stewart of the land for sure.

We have lost another great outdoorsman so who is going to step up and take his place?

Very well said Northlander, I must say, I really enjoyed watching Tony and since he was so down to earth about his show and not all glam, I felt like he was the guy next door doing thing just like him was something anyone could do. He will be missed! My thoughts to Tony's family.

Very sad news. I did have the chance to meet him in person and talk to him as he was a keynote speaker for the Iowa Association of County Conservation Boards annual conference. He was an excellent speaker and talked to him afterwards that night during social hour in the hotel bar. Definitely down to earth guy and made time to hear what you had to say. True steward fo the land and water. RIP Tony

I agree with everything said about Tony. My guess is that Tony would be quite proud of the good words everyone is saying about him.

He was one of my all time favorites.

Terrible news...

Absolutely loved watching Tony Dean. He gave us Minnesotans a look at the outdoors life in the Dakotas.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
