I can remember a lot of Saturday mornings when I was little, watching him shoot on TV. My brother and I would try to emulate him shooting airborn targets with our bows.. That dude cost me a bunch of arrows. :D

Sad news Fink!

What a neat guy.

When I was a boy I was hunting with my dad in the Gravelly Mountains. We rode some horses up a closed road and heard some shooting. We came around the corner and found Bob Munden over a five point bull above the road. We got off and started lending a hand. Dad recognized Bob (Dad's from Butte), and asked him about all the shooting. Bob told him the bull just wasn't going down. Dad couldn't resist, and told him he should have used a pistol! Bob laughed pretty good at that one.

True story.

Rest in peace, Bob.

Very sad to hear. I also grew up watching him on the weekends with my brother. RIP

That is sad news. May he rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

I saw him do some fancy shooting on TV. It was sure fun watching him shoot.
