Now that hunting season is over, the Crook County Search and Rescue Team is gearing up to go help lost snowmobilers and cross country skiers.  Crook County Search and Rescue spokesman Wes Palin says they went on seven missions this hunting season; many more than usual. “Most of it has been planning issues.”

People who are extremely irresponsible may even have to pay for the search. "It’s a rarity; there is a statelaw where we can charge but that would be an extreme case where the resources were not used property."   Besides dressing warm for the winter conditions and taking enough emergency supplies, Palin says you need to file an exact plan of where you'll be and check in with someone back home once a day.
