Craig Peterson Condolences to his family. A true sportsman to the end. I loved how he did everything his way, the Bart’s way. I always looked forward to his shows on the weekend. Even after he became disabled he found a way. Very inspiring man and life. Rest easy my friend.
Cheryl Berner Thompson I am broken hearted to read this! My husband and I met Tred at the Miami Boat Show several years ago. He was SO friendly and inspirational. He made me feel special discussing fishing! He was supportive and encouraging. He was an incredibly special person and will be missed terribly by a lot of people
Waylon Neeld Rest in peace Tred. I have followed this stubborn ol fella for a long time and have always admired his strength as spirit to succeed. I am not saddened as much as I am joyful that he is now with his heavenly father and whole once again. Rest easy Tred.
Joseph Herring Rest in peace my friend.
When we spoke last week…I never thought it would be for the last time.

You never gave up even in your final hard years. Watching you for decades help me get to where I am today. Thanks for the stories and memories in the field. Always hoped to hunt with you one day buddy. God speed!
Barry Van Delinder I’ve been following Tred for decades. One of my favorite episodes was when he went hunting for bear in Alaska with a long bow! Of course he had a guide with a gun with him but was really exciting. This news makes me
Heather Rymar So sorry to hear of this…he was an inspiration to me and I enjoyed watching his show, one of the only outdoor shows I watched. Thank you for showing us the impossible can be done.
