I am writing this with a heavy heart. This past monday i lost a good friend and the hunting community lost a friend. mark " moke" Macdoald, or on Nova Scotia Hunting he was known as Wolfman, passed away from heart disease very suddenly. Although he was an all around hunter, he is most well know for his buck that he took in 2010, dubbed Medusa on this site. It was officially [email protected] scored at the sport and rv show in 2011 at a net score of 211 non typ. AT times like this a person doesnt know what to say... what to do.. to elivieate the pain the family is going through. Moke was going to be married today.... May the fourth... but instead his fiance and family will have to lay him to rest tomorow. Please everyone say a prayer for the friend and family, and hold your own just a little tighter in this time of sadness. I will miss u my friend, i hope your sitting on a deertrail above us smiling.

Man...this IS a shock !!! Such a tragic, terrible loss. Sooo young.... unbelieveably sad. My deepest condolences go out to his family and fiance. God bless you all !

...I had the priviledge to meet Mark...as did my family, two years ago at the RV Show when he bought that phenominal deer head in to be scored. We were in awe, of the deer and Mark. !. His smile beamed with the mention of hunting. The passion was very real, evident in his words when he spoke. He left a great impression on us, and likely on everyone he met. He'll be sadly missed !!

Thanks Kevin, you are right it is too young. He was only 35, with a 7 year old son, and about to be married. A lot of lives that he touched will never be the same again, my own included. I joke, but it is true, my last buck that i shot, i actually was thinking of moke when i was walking up to it laying an the ground. I know i will be doing the same thing the next deer i take, but this time i will have a tear in my eye .

So so sad only 35. My condolences to family and friends. The old folks always said live one day at a time and every day like your last. Unfortunately few believe that and it took cancer for me to realize how true that was. My heart breaks for his son being only 7. I was 9 almost 10 when my dad died at 36 years old and I can tell you it is no fun growing up with no father. God bless you all

Deer zones in Nova Scotia need to be reduced in size and micro managed by DNR. Zone 107 is too big!! It needs to be cut in half with the Shubie River as a boundry. Areas on the Hant Co side should not be either sex but bucks only with a doe draw, in my opinion. >Pete

Darn shame we lost this young fella,i met him at the sports show the year he had Medusa on display,first impression was a serious hunter with a GREAT passion for the sport.He was one of those guys you meet once and remember,My wife was surprised at how composed he was for shooting such a huge buck,nothing went to this young mans' head thats for sure.Very nice guy,sory to hear of his passing.

Thanks everyone for all the well wishes and condolances. Thanks kpr for the help with the pics , anyone who knows how to get the pictures of him out of the deer galery to post on here would be greatly appreciated. Just going to let everyone know that we have been in contact with Big Buck magazine who have agreed to do a story on our friend in the next issue. I do not know of a more deserving person to grace the pages, just hate to see it under such context. But i hope he is smiling looking down on us all now.

Rest in peace Wolfman.Such a tragic loss not only to his family but our hunting community.I know many hunters including myself were in awe of him after the Medusa buck and thought of him as a hunting legend.Being struck down at such a young age makes us put more thought into carefully making sure we use what time we have been given to do the things we want with the people we want to do them with.
