I Knew This Would Get Out

Figures Oregonguy would pick up this story:

October 10, 2013--Sheriff's Deputies responded to a remote area in western Washington County to rescue a 58 year-old hunter who had been assaulted by a naked man.

On October 10, 2013 about 9:00 a.m., Sheriff's Deputies were called by a hunter who said he was attacked by a naked man and now was holding the man at bay with his hunting rifle.  He reported he was in a very remote area south of Highway 26 in Manning, north of Banks.

Multiple deputies assisted by Oregon State Police, searched the area by the descriptions given them by the hunter.  Deputies used their air horns in an attempt to have the hunter direct them to his location in the heavily wooded rugged terrain.  As the deputies hiked in and got closer, they had the hunter blow his whistle to pin-point his exact location.  The search was very difficult and time consuming due to the thick forest and steep terrain.
I always drink a bit more as it gets colder, and it never ends well. Heck I don't even remember the walk to Oregon.
