Subby's headline makes it sound like the dog led the hunter into the icy river....

They never have to rescue gatherers.  Just want to point that out.

Which would make him NOT a very good boi.

Because they die of poisonous mushrooms before anyone can get to them?

Subby may be the author.

The Lovells Township Fire and Rescue unit transported the hunter out of the woods to the canoe, and he was then taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Surprise Canoe does not care about your need for context.

He had fallen into the river three times.

You're not here for the hunting, are you?

He thought that lake was a farmers market and kept running into it.

Really depends on your perspective, doesn't it?

Why is it "Fark:" that he was 80. Because it's an irrelevant detail?

You ain't here to hunt are you?

Cause he's outdoors, doing something he enjoys at age 80 and not sitting in a nursing home watching Judge Judy and trying to get an erection?

Oh come on. You've seen her bikini pic.

That'll teach him to take his walker out on the ice.

That area is replete with geezers. He probably is home from Florida for hunting and Turkey day.

My family threw my 83 year old dad in the Au Sable last summer.

How many 80-year old hunters do you know? Especially ones that go hunting in winter-ish Michigan.
 
2022-11-19 4:11:18 PM  
At least he didn't shoot another person... yet.

I don't know if that area got hit hard with snow, but the west side of the state got 12+ inches and it is still coming.

"The hunter's wife told police that her husband was tracking a deer and had been missing for approximately three hours, says the release. She heard him shoot several shots, indicating that he was lost."

If you are that close to home and get lost then maybe you should consider that it is time to stop going hunting. Or learn how to use a compass and bring one with you.

Because there comes a point in every hunter's life when they are too old to hunt on their own.

A police dog named LOKI helped locate an 80-year old hunter...

Hmm. Loki... I like that name.

Hunter could have been Hitler for all we know. Leading Hitler to an icy river to drown would make it a very good boi.

My Dad is 80 years old, and went on a week long hunting trip in northern Michigan, and I have not heard from him in the past few days, so before getting more than halfway into the article, I was getting a kick....

My Mom passed away last year, so when I got to the part about "wife reported her husband had..." I felt a bit of relief.

I hope I can be as active as my Dad at that age. He goes fishing one or two times a week, plants a full garden, shovels the driveway...

If I got hit with 12 inches, I'd still be coming too.

My grandfather went hunting every season almost daily from Oct 15 to the last day of January right up until the day he died at 88 yrs of age. He was in a group of men who had leased around 9500 acres back in the 1950s and kept it til present day. He would hop on a atv and ride way back into the woods....alone...and hunt. The day he died he came home because my grandmother had used the cb to tell him to come eat lunch. He ate and sat in his chair to nap and never woke up. Im thankful he had just done his 2 favorite things. Hunt and eat lunch with my grandmother and not been laying up in assisted living or something.

Just an update.... my 80-year old Dad got back yesterday, no luck on bagging a buck, but it's as much about hanging out with family and the friends that have shared the same hunting grounds for decades.

I wish I could join him, but cancer (and the radiation treatment) has mostly killed my right eye's optic nerve, so I don't shoot any more, and I'm not investing a crazy amount of money (or time and energy) into making things work, just to go hunting once a year. I'm not a gun nut, but I was good enough  to consider joining the Marine Corps competitive shooting team when I was enlisted.
