Teton County SAR Reibursed For Expenses

June 4, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments

The Wyoming Search and Rescue Council awarded Teton County Search and Rescue $17,906 in reimbursements for operations over the past year.  The council is overseen by the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security which prior to the requests for reimbursements from 12 counties, had nearly three quarters of a million dollars of donated search and rescue funds in its account. Those funds are collected whenever hunting, fishing, snowmobiling or other state recreational licenses are sold.  The council says hiking, horseback riding, hunting and snowmobiling incidents are the leading causes of search and rescue missions.  Altogether statewide, there were 301 missions conducted in 2012, compared to 312 in 2011 and 259 in 2010. While the state office of Homeland Security has recently arranged with the Wyoming Air National Guard to use their helicopters for missions in most areas of the state at no cost to the state or counties, Teton and Sublette Counties have for years leased helicopters to have available for their mountain missions.

    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]

  • GPS will sometimes lead you to astray - August 29, 2014
    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
