Does anyone know if he is still writing? I know that when I was flat on my back from this dog gone stroke, he lost his beloved Carolyn, lost track of him after that.

Don't know what his status is, but I seen a new DVD of his Listed in the three Rivers catalog.

I believe Dave is enjoying the peace and quiet of SW Colorado. Ever since Carolyn passed and he stopped writing the Campfire Philosopher in TB magazine he hasn't been heard from much. I really miss his writing the Campfire Philosopher because his replacements aren't anywhere close to Dave when it comes to writing ability. His DVD On the Wild Edge is excellent and highly recommended as well as all of the books he has written. They can be found on his website.

Yes, I agree all his books are excellent, most I purchased from his website and he autographed them. Vid Wild Edge is great.

When he was campfire philosopher I would go straight to the back of the mag to read it first thing. It ain't the same!

I like him.

He used to post here back in the day. I liked his non-PC style.

Of course it's not the same different writers. With that said JRW has written a few articles that have been spot on and some that have had me taking a pause at how I relate too life and hunting.

The current campfire philosophers have vast experience, but Peterson taught college writing courses.

His video is great. Have read most of his writings and have learned from them all.

Always enjoyed his writing immensely despite his liberal bent. Sorry to hear of his loss.

Uuuummmm,.....yeah. Dave is just more my kind of people, I related better to him and his hunting.

Losing a spouse has an immediate impact on your life. I wish nothing but the best for Mr Peterson. Lance
