Death on Last Mountain in Sask

Looks like a fellow died ice fishing off Grandview Beach on Last Mountain this weekend.  He and his quad went through the ice and his buddy couldn't save him. :'(

Ice conditions are sketchy out there with this warm fall, let's all be extra careful.

I was talking to a buddy in Regina as I was thinking of heading out to do some ice fishing and was told to stay home the ice is no good....

Never the less, I feel for the family..
Very sad...

I was born and raised 30 miles west of Last Mountain...It is a big lake that has claimed many souls over the years...Like Waxy stated "let's all be extra careful." My condolances for the family and friends...

I have 2 friends that went through on Lesser Slave, 2 of the guys lost their snow cat in 15 feet while taking their shack out, the only thing that saved their lives was their shack didn't go down, otherwise they would have died of hypothermia.

I hate to say it but it's a bit early to be driving anything on lakes anywhere. It's awfully sad when the day starts out as something fun and a guy never gets to go home.

Sad story indeed.  Looks like a year for extra caution on the ice.  I will take heed as well.

Very sad indeed.  While we all take some risks in the adventures we pursue, some extra due diligence when it comes to ice is always the best bet.  Play safe out there guys!
