Missing Hunter Finds Himself….
On September 24, 2015 at approximately 7:15pm David Hoie returned to his hunting camp. A Deputy responded to the camp to confirm that Mr. Hoie was there and to see if he needed medical attention. Mr. Hoie declined medical attention and seemed in good spirits. The Deputy interviewed Mr. Hoie who stated that he hiked into a canyon on September 23, 2015 and was unable to hike out until the morning of September 24, 2015, he ran into some other hunters on the 24th who then gave him a ride back to his camp. He stated that he had noticed both the fixed wing aircraft and helicopter about five miles west of his location. Mr. Hoie thought that the plane was there scouting the fire that was still burning in the area.
