I'm sorry to hear the news and we'll keep Bart/family/friends in our thoughts and prayers.

Friends are a special gift and it sure hurts when we loose them.

Prayers and more prayers for the family. I have thought a lot about this since getting home from black bear hunting yesterday. I was in mountains but not bushplane outthere. I just cannot understand going out to true wilderness for weeks by yourself. Did he have a firearm for backup? Granted I have never been in country like that and do not know "how" huge bears normally act. This scares me more than I want to admit. A life ending doing what you love is a life well spent.

Article from the Whitehorse newspaper:

Remains of lost hunter believed found

By Chuck Tobin

Police have recovered human remains they believe are those of a Whitehorse bow hunter reported missing last week in a remote area west of Stewart Crossing.
The discovery was made Sunday after Whitehorse tracker Dibs Williams travelled into the Reid Lakes on his own initiative to see if he could locate his friend, 49-year-old Bart Schleyer, days after the RCMP had ceased their active search of the area.
Williams came across the bow, a shredded balaclava with hair in it, and other articles belonging to Schleyer in thick brush, off the game trail, about 60 metres from where Schleyer’s rubber boat was found tied up last week, RCMP spokesman Sgt. Guy Rook confirmed this morning.
He said upon receiving the new evidence turned up by Williams, police organized a team of about dozen, comprised of police officers, conservation officers and civilian trackers, who flew into the site by helicopter Sunday.
The human remains – a skull with its teeth, and various bones – were located at 6 p.m. about 100 metres from the site of articles discovered by Williams, Rook said.
He said bear and wolf tracks were found in the vicinity of the remains.
The team was on the ground to begin its grid search at 11 a.m.
“We suspect that the human remains are Mr. Schleyer,” Rook said. “However, we are waiting for forensic analysis to confirm the identification.”
In a letter appearing in today’s Star, a friend of Schleyer’s from his hometown of Cheyenne, Wyoming, describes him as world-renowned wildlife biologist with extensive experience living in back-country wilderness areas to study large carnivores.
Schleyer was reported missing last Monday when a Mayo bush pilot reported he had missed the prearranged pickup date, and that his camp looked abandoned. The pilot had dropped Schleyer at the larger of the two Reid Lakes on Sept. 14.
Police conducted an air search Tuesday, followed Wednesday by what Mayo RCMP Cpl. Guy Lagimodiere described last week as an extensive ground and ai search.
Lagimodiere said Thursday the search indicated there had not been anybody at the camp for two weeks or longer, and that Schleyer had likely not spent more than a day at his camp – maybe two.
No fire had been lit, and evidence showed remnants of just one meal being consumed, the corporal said.
The RCMP came under fire Thursday from a Whitehorse woman and a friend of Schleyer, Tammy Somerton, who expressed concern and disappointment that the police had no further plans to search the area.
Rook said while the police did not return to the site until after the discovery of several articles by Williams, they had been planning a search as well as making some inquiries to ensure Schleyer hadn’t walked out of the area and possibly contacted somebody.
The ground search on Wednesday indicated there was no sign of activity in the area, and the RCMP essentially didn’t know where to begin looking in a vast area of dense bush, and needed to develop a plan, Rook said.
He said it was believed Schleyer had either left the area, or that police would be searching for a body.

Thats a shame.

I'm sure that Bart would not lived life any other way.  When you live a bit on the edge experiencing many things that most others only dream of things can happen. Bart lived his dreams to the fullest, I'm sure he died with no regrets.

God's speed Bart.

I read this last nite and am still in disbelief having heard quie a bit about him.  Seeing a few of the old pics, including one of him and a very nice ram he shot here in Alaska.   I missed Jay before he passed, never heard of Jeff till he passed..., I put off meeting John Dodge till spring time, and now Bart!  uhhhh is all I can say.

Prayers and best wish's to his family and friends...
