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.

  • Towing with a half-ton - July 31, 2014
    I’ve been hauling horses with either a three-quarter-ton or a one-ton truck for about the past 10 years, and I’ve gotten kind of spoiled by the towing power of those old Ford diesels. Even with a heavy load cruising along behind me, I’d sometimes forget I was pulling a trailer. But when the F-350 started […]
