I just saw one of Tred Barta's buddies pull a cactus needle out of Tred's left butt cheek with a Leatherman. He sat on it while coyote hunting near the Rio Grande. Talk about funny.

I did a search and couldn't find any updates on him. Anyone know how he's doing?

Tred Barta Update

October 2, 2009.
Tred Barta, noted outdoorsman and host of the TV show The Best and Worst of Tred Barta on the Versus network, has ended three months of hospitalization and returned to his Colorado home to continue to recover from debilitating injuries suffered last May.
Originally diagnosed with a a rare spinal stroke, Barta is actually suffering from an equally obscure condition known as Waldenstrom's Disease, a cancer-like illness that thickens the blood.
The damage from the disease cost Barta the use of his legs, but it remains to be seen how much this will slow him down - he has been steadily practicing archery from the wheel chair to which he is now confined.
Versus has renewed his show for next year, and all of his sponsors are still with him.
"My goal now is to encourage others," Barta said. "I want to inspire people, to be a role model."
