Tred Barta Continues Recovery From Spinal Stroke

June 24, 2009.

Tred Barta, noted outdoorsman and host of the TV show The Best and Worst of Tred Barta on the Versus network, continues to recover in a Denver hospital.

Several weeks ago, Barta suffered a rare spinal stroke while at his home in Colorado. Like a stroke in the brain, a spinal stroke cuts off oxygen to nerves.

The damage from the stroke cost Barta the use of his legs, but it remains to be seen how much this will slow him down — he has already begun practicing archery from a wheel chair and is reportedly aching to get back afield.

“My philosophy's under test,” he said. “I'm proud to say my philosophy is 100 percent solid. I'm not scared. All I can do is do 100 percent of what I'm able to do with what God gave me.”

See the Vail Daily News for more details and photos of the recovering Barta.
