My day was ruined today when I recieved a Private Message from Hunterdad. The news is so bad and terrible that I just can not get my fingers to type the words, so I will just post a copy of the message:


Hello Dick, just wanted you to know that archerynetwork family lost a great guy (Wisconbow) Steve Venn, he took his life on Tuesday, so if you want to put up a thread ,That would be great, I lost a great friend and a shooting partner, Thanks Ken (Hunterdad)

Wisconbow was a member and contributor to this site and to Mutantville, so I figured that you all would appreciate me passing on the sad and tragic news. :( Would you all please join me in a moment of silence and prayer for Steve and his family? :(:cry: May God Forgive him for taking his life and take him into heaven, so that he can Rest in Peace and Hapiness!

I will really miss Steve because he and I had developed a pretty decent friendship in the past few months.:(:cry: I always enjoyed reading his posts and the Private messages that he would send to me. :)

May God Have Mercy on your soul Steve and may you find Peace and Happiness by sitting with God in Heaven! I'll miss you Buddy! :sad: :cry:

Over at archerynetwork.com some of the people have suggested that we donate whatever we feel we can afford or what we deem appropriate to Steve's family to helpout with expenses and to show his family that he was well respected in the archery community. Hunterdad has graciously accepted the role of collecting and to handle the gift to Steve's Family. Here is his address:

Send to: Ken Ruples
576 Russell st.
Fond du Lac Wi. 54935

Just a thought. :)

May the comforting hand of our Lord and Saviour surround all those who knew this child of God:) ... words cannot touch the pain we feel right now:cry: ....only the peace from our Heavenly Father can provide a refuge:)

I talked to him on the phone a couple times, he seemed so nice. Always talking about his bad knee, wife, and the dogs, the great dane was teething and literally eating the molding off the windows:eek:

Like all here....I was shocked when I heard this news...have pmd and email Steve....never did he show how much he must have been hurting inside...to leave behind his family and friends who truly loved him for who he was...

....and I know that any one of us would have done whatever we could to help him if we knew...but none of us knew...it was completely unexpected...folks...don't blame yourselves for not being able to help him...I doubt any of us could have imagined what was going to happen...

....and that's how life goes sometimes...it's not always pretty...and sometimes...there is simply nothing we can do about certain situations...it's toughest, in these unexpected situations, for those left behind...wondering 'What if?' or "Why?"..I know...I've been left behind three times...it's never easy...second guessing ourselves only makes it harder...

Steve...wherever you are...I am praying for you and your family and friends...God Bless you all....Ray :cry:

I'm in total disbelief and shock over this. Was just "talking" with Steve via PM's last week about Merlin bows. He was a wonderful human being and it truly feels like a brother's been lost.

He had just posted a fletching tool that was collecting dust on his shelves that he was going to give away as long as whoever got it, would use it and then give it away to someone else. That post was on this last Monday on archerynetwork.com the day before he took his life on Tuesday.

This all feels so wrong. Just absolutely no warning signs at all .....

Be at peace, Steve. We'll all miss you. Prayers to your family.

That is so sad.

Here is his last post from just a few days ago. It looks like he was excited about life and very happy. Man, I wish he had reached out to us. I think we could have helped

http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showpost.php?p=2348384&postcount=11

His tagline is telling:

If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.

I hope he has found peace in a heaven full of puppies.

RIP Steve.

I so sorry for such a great and tragic loss. He was a great poster on AT. I can remember reading his posts and perhaps even conversing. He seemed to me a very great man. My sympathy and all of my best wishes to his family in the future. May his spirit live on in those who were his close friends and family.

Take it from someone who has experienced this first hand, the people who need our help the most are often the ones who hide it the best. The pain his family is feeling right now is unimaginable and I offer my most sincere condolences to them. I hope that they can find peace and understand that what happened was not their fault that whatever "demons" were haunting Steve can no longer harm him. I pray that God will grant Steve And his loved ones peace.

RIP Steve

This has to be a true statement. Other than excruciating pain from a terminal illness, I cannot fathom how one can take their own life, no matter how bad things may seem at the time. I myself am scared to death of dying (no pun intended, I really am). But people do, and they are the ones who seem to hide it best. Most people who claim they are going to commit suicide never do-they are merely crying out for help. The ones that actually do it seem to have lost the ability to cry out for help, and that is a shame.

I hope he has found the peace that he evidentally was searching for....

Even though I have posted on this thread. I am putting on a post I made in the other thread about this tragic event. I feel very strong about it. Maybe it will help those that feel like they just didn't know and feel so bad.

So here it is:


I cry each time I read this thread, as I'm sure we all do.

I think we all have been touched by this with the delicacy that life can hold.

And that everyone feels "if only" I had known. Therein lies the tricky part.
Sadly from too many experiences with this same thing, I know that many times people "cover up" (and quite well) what is actually going on in their hearts, mind and soul. Even though they may seem perfectly lucid and rational to you. They keep it buried deep inside. Trust me....you will not always recognize it! So please, do not berate yourself.

So as I also beseech anyone, at any time to please contact me or any of the family here on AT. We are always here for each other. No matter what trials and tribulations, big or small........just open yourself and ask for help. We will do anything and everything in our power.
And that may include taking you by the hand directly and guiding you to a professional, who is better equipped to give that kind of help and guidance.

BUT
We will always give you much love, support, a lending hand, a open ear and caring heart and open arms to hold and comfort you!

All I can say is: Take our hand, it is always there and open for you!

God Bless!!!

Charm, you have it exactly right. The most common expression we hear after something like this is, "If only I had known." Take it from me, most people who are seriously contemplating this act do not talk about it. This is a very personal thing, and the sick thing about mental illness, is that THIS MAKES PERFECT SENSE. Believe me, I have been there. I had come so close as having the date marked on the calendar, and was making my final plans. NO one knew. And it made perfect sense to me. The only saving thing is that my primary care doc is a very astute woman who knew something was very wrong. She literally took me by the hand one day, and personally walked me over to the psych building for an immediate consult. I left that day with some anti-depressants and a follow-up appointment for the following week. That was eight years ago, and I was exactly a month away from the planned date. Since then, I have come a long way and my therapy sessions now are simply once a month, instead of twice a week. I have been able to watch my sons two year old turn into a very lovely ten year old girl, I have my daughter's two beautiful little girls to love and hold that I never would have seen.

The point is, if you read what I say, and think you are feeling the same way, please, please, contact me, or another member here, or anyone you can and get the help you need. And also please consider what this will do to your loved ones left behind. After the terrible grief comes a terrible anger. This I also know, my grandfather was a suicide. And know this also, suicide leaves a family legacy. The child, or grandchild of a suicide is often in later years a suicide also.

February 24th, 2006, 02:10 PM
Thank you....I needed to be here for Steve! I posted this at the memorial but decided that it should be posted here as well.....

While it is wonderful to know that so many care and want to put out a hand to those in need.....what everyone needs to understand is that the ones that are most desperate, most lost, most alone, will never show a warning sign! Yes, it is very scary but it is true. More than likely family members do not even see something like this coming.

I am sure that Steve knew how much people care but felt that there was no other choice for him. Sometimes caring people just are not enough. Sometimes people feel alone in a crowded room, alone with family, alone in life, but never show it. Very few times when suicide is being contemplated will anyone even know the thoughts are there and all too often they find out one second too late. IMO

As much as everyone would like to help others, there is a line for most...that people will not cross. Most will not tell anyone their deepest darkest fears. Think about yourself, can you see yourself confiding in someone right this minute, your deepest darkest fears and trusting that they will keep those things as sacred as you do? Probably, not. Do you fear they would look at you in a different light, if they truly knew some of your thoughts? Most people would answer yes. Society today does not make it "ok" to be who we are. You must fit a mold of some sort, should I say this, should I ask that, is what I wear ok, will they think I'm crazy? When you add all of this to a person who is so desperate for help, will they confide in someone, the answer is simply NO, in most cases.

So, this being said, what can we do? We can quite simply be who we "truly" are. Ask yourself each day before you go to sleep,

"Did I make a difference for someone today",

"Could I have touched someone today and chose not to because I
didn't "have time"?"

"Did I listen the best I could have today?"

"Did I hear what they truly wanted me to hear or what I wanted to hear?"

And most importantly,

"Do the people I love, know that I love them?
unconditionally without borders, love them? That they are the reasons I do
what I do everyday?"

When you can answer yes to each of these questions, IMO, you have done your best at reaching people for that day. If you didn't, work on it for tomorrow.

Beyond that, pray for all! I doubt that there is one person that has not touched your life that couldn't use our prayers! Especially if they seem like they "have it all"...those are usually the people who need the prayers the most and won't ask for them!

Our family will definately send a contribution....in the mean time all we can do is pray. We will also send cards from time to time to the family for it is not only now that they need support...it will be for the rest of their lives!

God Bless!

Word fails at times like this. So many questions, so few answers.

It makes us feel so helpless when someone close leaves and doesn't ask for help or even want to talk about it. Most seems to be planned.


One of my best buddies a Professional hunter in Africa was killed in a one car wreck at 3 AM Him mom found a detailed list of thing for her to do including burning all his photos & records etc.

He did this when I was back here in the USA at the Shot Show. I still wonder to this day if he would have done it had I been around for him to come over and take about things.

What can we do for the family?

So sorry and so Sad

He sounded like he was a great guy. I will pray that God will give strength to his family, and have mercy on his soul.

He obviously didn't want you to see it coming. Don't beat yourself up. We were all here and he didn't take advantage of us. That hurts like hell but is the truth.


May God have mercy on his soul.


And may God help us Mutants who are left behind hurt and heartbroken to deal with his choice.

While I never had the pleasure of knowing him, I am saddened by his death.
I'm not sure of what to say, other than may he rest in peace. His family has my sympathy for their loss.

I did not know him but it's obvious he's touched a lot of other peoples lives. My prayers and thoughts are with all of you and his family and friends.
