An Indiana hunter was mauled by a grizzly bear at Wolverine Creek in the Teton Wilderness Thursday after he and a hunting guide were unexpectedly charged the bear.  Teton County Undersheriff Bob Gilliam says the county’s search and rescue team was called in to evacuate the injured hunter and transport him to the hospital.  Gilliam says David Goodrich from Lafayette, Indiana and his hunting guide were hiking a trail when they were charged by a grizzly bear.  Gilliam says Goodrich apparently ran and the bear and the bear caught up with him and attacked him. Goodrich sustained a bite and broken leg in the attack.  Meanwhile, Gilliam says the guide fired a number of shots into the bear while it was on his client, and the bear ran off.  Gilliam says the hunting guide called for assistance on his cell phone and the interagency helicopter was summoned to fly in members of the search and rescue team to stabilize Goodrich and transport him to rendezvous with an ambulance waiting at Flagg Ranch.  From there, he was taken to St. John’s Medical Center for treatment.  Gilliam says Wyoming Game and Fish has been notified and is investigating the incident.

    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]

    I recently saw an advertisement for a product that’s sure to be a big hit with outdoorsmen. Especially those of us who stomp around in the woods when the temperatures climb into the nineties. Last weekend, I found myself sitting in jeans, boots, a long-sleeved shirt and a cowboy hat at Cheyenne Frontier Days. While […]
