Pat Traynor spoke to WDAY News about Dulmage. He said his longtime friend and hunting partner was a “pillar of the community” who demonstrated what the country lifestyle was all about “in terms of friendliness, kindness, empathy, people helping each other.” The grief-stricken man said his friend was a “generous soul” who often helped people quietly.

The other three victims were related to one another, but it’s unclear who fired the deadly shots.
