To my uncle Jack-
It hurts my heart to see such as loss. There have been many times I wanted to tell you just how sorry am I for all that has happened. Honestly, it has been hard for me and my family to talk about. I think about it everyday and I wanted to let you know that you are in my prayers. Kyle was an amazing person there is no doubt about that. I will always remember him for the wonderful person he was and always will be. You are apart of my family and always have been. I wanted to let you know that we are here for you. We love you. Kyle will always be remembered in my heart.

Yesterday afternoon, I sat in the same tree stand Kyle took his only Whitetail Buck from last year. He shot a beautiful Buck. His Buck and the Buck we were hunting will be mounted by my friends Paul and Terry from Montana Taxidermy as a double mount. I saw one they did a few years ago. The Bucks are possed as if they are getting ready to fight. There will a seperation between them with a Grouse flushing from tall grass with beautiful piece of drift wood and rock I will hand pick from the Flathead River Bank. I told Kyle I would do this for him if I found another Rack as nice as his Buck.

My friend Tom from up on Teakettle Mountain found his dog chewing on a Bucks skull I have pictures of from my trail cam. It is the Buck I had hoped Kyle would harvest. I helped this old Hermit remove a big downed pine from his drive last Fall after a big wind. He told me about the Deer and I asked to see it. I was shocked to see it was the same Deer we had been hunting. There was no damage to the 12 point rack and he gave it to me for helping him.

Paul and Terry have agreed to do the mount for free. It will be a tribute to The John Kyle Daggett Freedom Foundation and be inscribed to honor the friendship between Kyle and RJ Mann.

It will travel along with many other item's to raise money to help our returning soldiers and their families who have lost HOPE.

I did not "know" Kyle, I knew "of" Kyle......from the many stories that his father, Jack has told me about their hunting and fishing escapades. If there is one thing I learned through listening to Jack, was that Kyle loved to hunt with his dad....and how Jack so enjoyed the time with his Jack as you hunt the woods in Montana this year......listen to the wind in the trees, for it is GOD's way of telling you, Kyle is with HIM and he is at peace.......and the next time you feel the warmth of the late summer sun on your face......know that it is the warmth of Kyle's love for you, reflecting off the love of our Heavenly Father.....and always know that Kyle is only a heart beat away.......

Dearest Jack,
"Kyle" is with God and is watching as you and his beloved sister Kendall walk the trails and climb the mountains. He is always with you. Find his spirit in the winter sky. The constellation "Orion".
Orion stands by the river Eridanus with his faithful dogs Canis Major and Minor. Orion is the "Dweller of the mountain" . One of the oldest constellations. Orion is known in Greek mythology as "The most beautiful of men and the most skillfull of hunters".
Your son is safe, and "Home".

God bless,

My son Sgt. Daggett was a very avid hunter and fishermen. He caught his first fish before his second bithday and got his first Red Rider BB gun at the age of 5. He became very skilled at stocking game bird's and Rabbits and soon was harvesting enough Doves, Quail and Rabbit's to make meals for the family. At the age of 10 he took his first Elk and by 15 had killed 3 Elk, 2 Mule Deer Buck's and a desert Hog.

In his short lifetime, he saw some of the best Crappi fishing and Trophy Bull Elk hunting in the world. One night Kyle, our dear Game and Fish Officer Randy Smith and I caught over 300 Crappi. The bite was slow unti 9:45 pm. So slow, one of our friends Tom Bechard asked to be dropped off at the dock so he could go home. I turned our Pontoon Boat towards an Island accross the lake and asked God to put us on a spot. As we approached the shoreline,I spotted a reflective Booie just off the Island. It was a perfect spot.

Randy had found a bottle of Jim Beam in the boat and had one to many in frustration of no fish. Kyle asked me to wake him up if the fish started to bite. I had to set up the boat and light's by myself. It was 9:20 pm. Bt 9:45 pm one of my slip bobber's went under and I caught a nice slab size Crappi. A minute later, I had another. I told the guy's
" you might want to get up, I think the bite is on. From 10:00 pm to 4 am in the morning, the bite was non-stop. You could not bait up a minnow fast enough and you could only use one pole. After about 100 fish, I was frustrated by the line's being burned as we hauled the big 2.5 pound Crappi in without a net. Often, the line's would hit a hot Lantern, or just brake fromthe weight. All three of us had fish on most of the night, so a net was normally out of question. waste of time. I put on a small Purl white swister tail Jig and dropped the line straight down and jigged it. I had a fish in seconds. I caught a half dozen before Kyle and Randy swithched.

We filled two large coolers and a small one. After Kyle caught 80 or so it was 2 am. He said " Dad I'm going to crash" so it was hust Randy and I up front. I caught another dozen or so I released. I left Randy by himself, catching fish and leting them go. We had over 200 in the cooler's.

When Kyle was 12, we went to unit 9, the South Rim of the Grand Canyon to share an Archery Elk Camp with his Uncle Bill and two other friends. The afternoon we arrived at cam, I put Kyle in a tree stand I had taken some good Bulls from. I sat a stand a little further up the draw. I heard a Bull Bugeling as he went to the tank Kyle was sitting. I could not see the tank, but could hear everything. The Bull was hot and screaming as he went to water and wallow. Kyle was 10' up a big Ponderosa sitting on a 2 by 4 I had placed there many years before. He had a 350 Bull walk right past the tree and go to water. From less than 15 yards he got to watch this beauriful animal do his thing. The Bull stayed for about 10 minutes. The next morning, we called in several Bull's to within 10 yards. One big 6 point Bull came in so fast and mad, I pushed Kyle into a small Oak thicket. The Bull was close and still coming. I waved my arm to get his attention. He justedlooked at me amd Bugeled before walking off. Within 1 hour that morning, we called in and saw a dozen nice Bull's. One Heard Bull was in the 400 class. For you non-hunter's this is a monster Bull. Kyle and His sister Kendall spent several great Elk Hunts with me. One of my most cherished memories with my children on a hunt is when Kendall, Kyle's sister killed her first Elk. She took the first by herslf as I was walking back to get the truck. I heard two shots, but could think who could be shooting. I ran back to the tank Kendall was sitting and Heard "I got an Elk', "I got an Elk". My daughter was in the moment all hunter's love. She was the Princes of camp that night and I will never forget how happy Kyle was for his sister.

God, thank you for blessing me with a son and daughter who loved to share time with their father doing what he loved to do. I could and should write a book on our hunting and fishing adventure's.

Now it is hunting season here in Montana. Yesterday, I heard the first Bull bugel from high up Teakettle Mt.

It hurts me deeply to know my son will never hear that sound again, or stock Trophy Whitetail Bucks with his Bow.

For those of you who read this and have a young son at home, love and cherish every moment you have with your children. Girl's like to get out with there dad's too.
