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.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
