    So sad to read this. He truly was a steward of the land. What he was doing at his place to improve habitat was nothing short of amazing. I killed my first wild SD bird at Jim's place. Sad day indeed.

    I have attached Jim Aune's obituary from the Mount Funeral home in Platte SD. Very difficult read for me after being with him on his last day. Visitation is tomorrow, Tuesday 930-1030am.

    Wow. Thanks for sharing, Chad. I'm so sorry you lost a friend. Jim sounds like someone who'd figured out what matters in life & who had a positive impact on everyone he met.

    I am just another of the many, to whom Jim opened his land, always free of any charge. My party came up to Platte from North Carolina, knowing no one, no dogs, not much experience or hope. Jim greeted us and immediately guided us across the road to a shelter belt full of birds. If I could shoot, I would have had my limit in one pass. We had too few years with him. I'm 76; may get back there again this fall, may not. But it won't be the same without SDJim. RIP.

    Also sorry to hear about the loss of all ya'lls good friend. Those were some fantastic pictures, and I'm confident there are equally fantastic stories to accompany Jim. John from South Carolina.

    Man that really sucks. I had conversed with him many times of his love for KU basketball and had made plans to see him a couple times while in SD but it never worked out. He seemed like a very giving man with a good heart. He was one of the one's on here that got me excited about hunting. Sorry about your friend I know you were close.

    I never met SDJim but I sure enjoyed reading his posts here. Sounds like a really, really fine man. My condolences to the family and to you.
