Searchers have discovered the body of a 61 year-old member of a politically prominent western family.  James Udall’s body was located in the Wind River Mountains near Pinedale Wednesday afternoon.  According to the Sublette County Sheriff’s office, Udall’s body was spotted from the air, lying in open, rolling terrain on his side.  The helicopter landed immediately and searchers found no signs of life.  A detective with the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office was subsequently flown to the scene and picked up Udall’s body.  The body is to be transported to Loveland Colorado where an autopsy is to be performed.  Sheriff’s officials did not speculate on a cause of death, but said foul play is not suspected.  He was considered an accomplished outdoorsman.  Udall was a brother of Colorado Sen. Mark Udall, cousin of New Mexico Sen. Tom Udall, and son of the late Arizona Rep. Morris “Mo” Udall. His uncle, Stewart Udall, was Interior secretary in the 1960s.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • 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 […]
