It’s been a busy season so far for the Crook County Search and Rescue Team. Spokesman Wes Palin says they've already gone on seven search and rescue missions this fall: “Most of it has been planning issues. We've been called out on people who were overdue and hadn't checked in, and they were basically fine. They just hadn't checked in."   Hunting season is usually their busiest time of year and now that it's over Palin says they shift gears to rescue stranded snowmobilers and cross country skiers. He says when you go out in the wilderness tell people back home where you're going to be and check in on a daily basis. Of course, you need to always dress for winter conditions and bring enough food and water in case you get lost or injured.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
