County Sees First Hunting Season SAR

With hunting season in full swing now, it is not unexpected for Teton County’s Search and Rescue team to be called out to assist hunters in distress.  The first of the calls for this hunting season came Tuesday evening as the result of a 60-year-old man being thrown from a horse while hunting in the Teton Wilderness.  Search and Rescue Director Tim Ciocarlan says Dr. Roderick Beer of Ann Arbor, Michigan was bucked from the horse when it spooked, but was able to climb back on and make his way back to the hunting camp.  There, his companions and guide helped him off the horse and to a place where he could rest comfortably for the night.  The guide notified Teton County Dispatch of the accident from his satellite phone.  By Wednesday morning, when an evacuation effort could be launch, Ciocarlan says Beer could not move on his own.  Ciocarlan says SAR members, assisted by the interagency helicopter, flew to the camp and airlifted Beer to a waiting ambulance which then took him to St. John’s Medical Center for treatment.  There was no immediate word on Beer’s condition.

  • Hunting season = diet season - August 18, 2014
    I grew up hunting elk with horses. In my opinion, that’s the best way to get the job done. You can pack a comfortable camp far back into the wilderness, then hunt on foot from there. If someone’s lucky enough to bring down one of the beasts, loading the carcass onto a pack horse is […]
