An avid outdoorsman, Nelson was killed in a July farm accident, and friends and family members this year decided his deer stand would remain empty throughout the hunting season.

Family keeps tradition alive after hunter’s death

NEAR MIDDLE RIVER, Minn. — Brad Nelson’s deer stand sits empty this fall, a decision his family made as tribute to a man who was the life of their hunting camp.

So many good times. So many stories, some of which can’t be told in print.

That’s the way it is in every deer camp. What happens in camp … stays in camp.
