A Prineville hunter is recovering in the hospital today after three chilly nights in the Ochoco National Forest. Alan Hewitt, 48, was elk hunting on Thanksgiving when his horse slipped and fell, both were injured and they were far from their main camp. After several days in the wilderness, another hunter found Hewitt on Sunday, but they had to leave his two horses behind. A Crook County Search and Rescue Team went out to get the horses yesterday.  Spokesman Wes Palin says it's not their policy to search for animals, but they were able to help this time: "We needed a training mission because we just go some fresh snow and we had some people that needed a little bit of training in the snow. And also we have a mounted posse in our group and a lot of horse lovers our here in Prineville and thought we could go out and help." Palin says they found both horses and says they are doing fine. Hewitt is listed in serious condition at Saint Charles Medical Center in Bend.
