I always said I wanted to be  "[dntthnk]"   cremated and have my ashes placed in a Mason jar which was to be put on a shelf over my widow's bed. Just to give her next husband something to think about. Today,I want them scattered over "Big Mountain" in northwestern Colorado so I can forever hear the music of bull elk in the fall...

That's my thought, too! Over the years I have hunted the same place, (my place, not your elk-ridden bit of Heaven!), watching it change and stay the same at the same time. It's where I pray, and play, and where my beloved dogs' ashes go when it's time. Since I don't figure I'd be able to stay hid if I were so lucky as to die there, the next best thing would be to have someone care enough to make sure that my ashes were deposited there. It would be a way to give it back..

I hear ya John. Sometimes when the wind blows just so i find my mind wanderin' somewhere up around timberline, wonderin' what's over the next ridge--haven't been out west (to hunt) for at least four years now but there's a little piece of my soul that never leaves there

A lot of good stuff here Terry.

Off the subject a little, but I wonder how many of us have went out hunting when we were sick. I know I have many times. I figure if I am going to feel bad I might as well have a bow in my hand  :D

On the subject..ashes for me I like Killdeers view on this..

thanks Terry, been a little preoccupied with death lately, at least this thread helps put a positive spin on that

I'll let those that I leave behind decide what to put on mine....my hopes are it will read something like this: Beloved Father to His Sons who Grew to be Fine Men Under His Teaching, Husband to the Love of His Life Who Knew She Was Every Day and Dear Friend to Many Who Will Cherish the Memories They Made Together.

John I like your idea,but if my luck held my ashes would get spread two basins away from where the elk actually were.

LJB - LOL  :)

My instructions to my wife are to bury my ashes deep under the fire pit at our camp so I can continue to enjoy the friendships and magic it provides. Many a great time I've had there and its as close to heaven as I'll probably get.

Well, I'd like to go on an elk hunt (or muley), maybe when I'm 84 or 85, younger, older whenever, in say NW Colorado.  Start walking SW, find me a high peak so I can look out over the canyons and enjoy God's beauty here on earth, and just fade away without anyone knowing where I'm at.  No funeral expenses, no fanfare, no epitath, no tears.  Just one day I was here, the next I went to meet my maker.  Selfish?  Naw, just the way I am.  I enjoy solitude.

Mine will probably say something like:

Funny this thread should come up.  My wife and I were discussing this topic last weekend and I told her cremation, and then have them taken to the top of a mountain in Colorado.  I'v enver felt closer to God than I do up there so I fugure I stand a better chance of getting in if I don't have so far to travel.

OooPs Sorry I already have my headstone picked out. I have a Friend that Makes them. It is a Picture of me & my Longbow, drawn down on a Whitetail Buck in the woods under the big white Oak I hunt under every year.

I'm gonna be cremated...but I've often thought it would be cool for some of my ashes to be mixed with some pitch or glue, or cresting paint, and hafted or painted on some shafts so that my buddies could still hunt with me!

We live in the present, we dream of the future, but we learn eternal truths from the past
When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.
