Hunters can be everyday heroes

To the editor;

I was told by a volunteer rescue worker that a senior was hunting north of Kamloops, between Lac de Bois and Jamieson Creek, when he got his vehicle stuck in the snow. It was late, so he spent a cold night in the vehicle and started walking at daylight. He was lost and had no idea how to get home.

After walking for five hours, he spotted a hunter on an all-terrain vehicle. That hunter went out of his way to bring the senior back to the main road to get home.The next day, a rescue unit took the senior back to the area to find his vehicle, but all the roads looked the same and they couldn’t locate it.

Upon returning home, the senior received a phone call. Other hunters found his car stuck in the snow, unlocked and with the keys in the ignition. They managed to get it out and brought it back to the man’s home. They used his insurance papers to track down his address.

All those gentlemen deserve a pat on the back. Most hunters are real gentlemen.
