Lost hunter

Postby dmankemper » Oct 9th, 2012, 7:42 pm

Does anyone know what happened to that poor hunter that search and rescue was looking for for 5 days? I know he was found, but I find it strange that it is all over the media, and then, just like that nothing else is said. By the way, my sincere condolences to the family of this man.

A person has died, and a family is grieving. Please don't hurt the family anymore by ?????

If he got shot by it, it obviously wasn't empty. #1 rule crossing an obstacle, or anytime out in the bush, is there's NEVER a round chambered unless you plan to fire it immediately. A tragedy that could have been averted.
So I love the Okanagan but it's a place best enjoyed from atop a very large pile of $100 bills. - Spocky

People make mistakes. Sadly, sometimes they are fatal mistakes.
