  6. My Families thoughts and prayers go out to the Kellogg Family – He will be missed. I didn’t see Bruce often, but I have several unforgettable memories of him when I did and am thankful for that. I remember a time when Ross, myself and Bruce were headed out duck hunting in a Jon Boat, full of guns and gear in the pitch dark about 4:00 AM. Ross was sitting a bit two for forward and water started running over the front of the Jon boat. Next thing I know there are guns flying, boat was sinking, decoys everywhere, all of us trying to get to solid ground. Luckily we were able to find the guns 5 feet under water. My initial reaction was, “it’s cold and we should head back to camp.” Bruce said, “well, we’re here.” We ended up getting what we could, the guns still fired and ended up having a pretty darn good duck hunt – Never forget it. Our Condolences, Jared Hauser & Kristi Hauser & Kids
