14-055; Oct 13/14 – an 18 year old hunter had gotten separated from his father and now found himself wet and cold from falling in the creek earlier, in rough, steep terrain covered with 5 inches of snow and the temperatures dropping it was 10:25pm).  He had texted his father that he need help and to call SAR.  At 1:00am a team of 2 rode ATV’s for about 1.57 miles to the end of FS 296 and then had to negotiate another 1.5 miles of wet, muddy, snowy, rough terrain to finally reach the subject at 5:00am.  The subject had been able to start a small fire but our team made it a bit larger and warmed and dried out a bit before the sunrise and at 7:00am started their long trek back out.  This too was a long, cold and tiring mission of 12 hours from first page to equipment put away for the next call.
