Tip Top Rescue

A 62-year-old hunter from Farson was rescued in Sublette County after a turn in the weather late Wednesday caught him unprepared.  According to a spokesman for Tip Top Search and Rescue, there was a call about a missing person late Wednesday evening in the Horse Creek area near Daniel.  The rescue group sent out several hasty teams throughout the night and into Thursday morning, at which time searchers heard 3 gun shots within one of the search areas.  They were able to signal the hunter with their own firearm, and after a few signals the search teams were able to pin point the subjects’ location.  Search teams packaged and transported the moderately hypothermic subject to an ambulance on the South Beaver Creek Road.  The subject was transported to the Pinedale Medical Clinic by Sublette County EMS.   Searchers, who were unable to release the man’s name, say he was unprepared for the weather conditions when he had gotten lost Wednesday.  Search teams dealt with nonstop rain throughout the duration of the search and were racing the clock to find the subject before a heavy snow storm moved into the area.
