On behalf of the Hensley Hunting Group (since 1995) of North Carolina, I offer heartfelt condolences to Dave Keiser's family and friends during your bereavement. Dave's passing is a great loss to so many people that he touched in so many ways. I have nothing but fond memories of hunting and cajoling with Dave, and like countless others, will miss him dearly. Shoot To Kill, brother Dave. Shoot to Kill.

No one is ever ready to say goodbye to a friend, even more so when it is a friend that occupies so many of your childhood memories.

Nikki and Chris your dad was "one in a million" in so many ways. Thank you for sharing him with me while we were growing up.

I also echo what Candy said and hope there are no game limits in heaven...

Chris Nikki and family. My deepest condolences for your loss. I have fond memories of your dad as I know do hundreds of others. He touched the lives of so many people. He made me belly laugh every time I spoke with him. He was such a positive and fun person to be around. God bless you and your entire family. He will be missed.

I am very sorry to hear of Dave's passing. My husband, Jerry Crandall and Dave had wonderful times hunting together. He thought of Dave as such a dear friend. The pheasants in heaven should be very nervous with both of them there now. You all have my condolences.

I will miss you my friend, Thank You for 15 years of the best turkey hunting ever! You taught me to turkey hunt and I took what you taught me everywhere I went and it always made me successful, You brought a charm to your camps you made it a hunt and what it was supposed to be after the hunt. My memories are all on my wall and there will never be a time when I will not look

Dave was a great friend to Bob, these two guys have left this earth to soon. Bob had so many great stories and loved his time with Dave. His last trip to SD was truly special. Thanks for your kindness. Our prayers are with you.

Already missing a great friend, and a constant source of great memories. Glad to have known and hunted with him these past 2+ decades.
