Teton County SAR Reibursed For Expenses

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.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]

  • Estimating range on waterfowl is easy - October 22, 2014
    If you’ve done any goose hunting, you’ve probably heard the term “skybusting.” You may know it means shooting at birds that are out of your shotgun’s effective range, but do you know if you’re guilty of it? You can set up your decoys to minimize the risk of shooting at birds when they’re too far […]
