Lost Hunter Rescued

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.

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
