This was just realeased in the local papers today as well to make people aware and be on the lookout. I don't imagine that was needed though as I would think if anybody found anything they would report it right away anyhow.
It was interesting to read though how many cases hunters have helped to solve while just being out there doing what we do.
Wow, if he was planning on going 25 miles, that's alot of area to cover. Nearly impossible, but a more than likely it will be a hunter or someone inadvertantly stumbling onto the remains. Makes sense they would ask for hunters to keep an eye out.
I have always looked for ways to save money and gain skills. I have the firearms basics covered so I rarely buy firearms these days. But I do watch for bargains. Sometimes a little TLC with simple tools will let you bring an old gun back to life without investing a lot of money. One such find was a side by side 12 gauge marked “W. Richards” It is not from the fine English gun maker Wesley Richards, it is a cheap knock off copy probably made in Belgium about a hundred years ago...
