Finn never preached, he didn’t need a soapbox, he didn’t strive for notoriety. He was content simply to share his knowledge, love of hunting, and respect of game and the wild country it inhabits. It all comes through undiluted in his simple, open, honest writing style. A Man Complete by Gary Sitton I first met Finn by way of John Wootters. John and I had been friends for some years, and as of 1979 or early 1980 I was his nominal boss in my alleged capacity as editor of Petersen’s Hunting.

Finn and Harald before their last hunt in November 1999. Some days were better than others; this was one of his good days. We got my deer rifle down from where he’d stored it in the attic, cleaned it off, and wiped oil out of the barrel with a fresh cleaning patch.
