Letters To The Editor – September 2019
Glen Solomon Will Be Missed
I have always enjoyed reading anything that Glen Solomon has written for GON over the years.
He has always made me think of the way hunting and fishing was meant to be done. I can tell he puts in the time and just does it the old fashioned way of working hard and just enjoying the time he spends in the woods or on a river.
After watching the YouTube video of him interviewing Kristen Peterson with the 16-lb. bass she caught, it really showed that he is a down to earth and a very solid human being.
GON readers are lucky to have someone like him to read and learn from. Thanks,
Jeff Bowen, Austell
Editor’s Note: Jeff’s letter arrived at GON on July 27, almost three weeks before Glen’s passing (see page 14). This is a true testimony to Glen, and to his passion for sharing the outdoors through his writing and videos and the fans he accumulated over the years.
Coyote Cull Winner
I have taken out more than 110 coyotes since 2015 by learning to trap. I’ve spent thousands on the hobby because I just simply love to trap coyotes, and I know how much it helps the deer and turkey populations.
Through a second-place finish in GON’s Coyote Cull, this is the first time I’ve been rewarded for killing coyotes, so I would really like to thank GON, as well as Trinity Homes and the other sponsors, for realizing this need.
People will spend thousands on guns, gear, ATVs and hunting accessories, but spending money to remove coyotes is just not on people’s radar like it should be.
Trinity Homes, which awarded me $500 cash, can rest assured that their sponsorship will go to good use. I will put every penny of it back into more traps and supplies to go out and kill more coyotes year-round.

Y’all Got An Inspiring Fishing Writer On The Team
GON does a really good job with teaching articles for bass fishermen, but I wanted to tell you that this article in the August 2019 issue by Walker Smith is a real stand out!
The story titled Shallow Crankin’ is clear, concise and inspired me to actually take it on the lake with me.
Hats off to Walker.
