It is with great sadness that I have to tell you all that JW left this world yesterday.

Some of you may only remember him from his passionate (sometimes over-passionate!) contributions to these forums; others from his fantastic exploits down through the years as the finest clay pigeon shot this country produced; others from his exploits as an expert and master deer stalker.

I will choose to remember him as a great friend, I will miss his steadfastness, his assuredness in his views, his confidence, his drive and enthusiasm.

One thing is for sure, the world will be a duller place without him.

RIP. Helped me get into stalking and was an absolute gentleman any time I spoke to him. A huge loss to Irish shooting.

It's no secret that jw and I didn't get on well, but when he posted here about what he knew, you knew he knew what he was talking about, and I enjoyed reading those posts immensely. Terrible loss.
