Thompson was writing a story for the National Observer about why the globe-trotting Hemingway shot and killed himself at his home three years earlier at age 61 .In the story, later collected in his book "The Great Shark Hunt," he noted the problem of tourists taking chunks of earth from around Hemingway's grave as souvenirs.Early in the piece, he wrote about the large elk antlers over Hemingway's front door but never mentioned taking them. For decades, the antlers hung in a garage at Thompson's home near Aspen, Colorado.Like Ernest Hemingway, Thompson ended his own life by shooting himself, dying in 2005 at age 67 at his Colorado home.Like Hemingway's home, it's much the same as it was when Thompson was alive.
