There is a thread on this hidden on the 'off topic' part of the forum but I'm glad to see this make the shooting related side that seems to be more popular. I'm not sure that most 'new' shooters realize how much of a benefactor Bill was to the ATA and organized trapshooting in the 1990's and 2000s. RIP Bill and condolences to the Ruthie and the family.
Knew Mr. Hunter for many years. Although we crossed paths maybe once or twice in a year, he always greeted me by name with a big smile and a hearty handshake. I agree that we are diminished. Condolences to Bill's family and all his friends in southern California from the Oregon shooters who knew him and those who benefited from Bill's generosity and support of our sport. One of my most treasured trophies is the draw-string pouch with 100 "silver" dollars donated by Bill that I won at a Redlands doubles marathon sometime in the 1990s.
