Missing man search...

11 posts in this topic

A hunter by the name of Korey Kelly is missing in Northern Beltrami County since Monday. He was grouse hunting with a friend and his friends golden retriever. After splitting up neither the dog nor Korey have been heard from.

They were hunting in the Red Lake Wildlife Management area north of Fourtown.

Please contact Beltrami County Sheriffs Dept. 218-751-9111 or 911 if you locate anything in the area.

Hunters discharging weapons have made the search difficult as searches try to confirm who was firing if it was Korey or someone else.

HEard on the radio this morning that they were going to start scaling back the search.They say they have covered 20sq miles on land and in the air and found nothing. Talking about bringing dogs to help.

Bad deal.

They found the dog walking a road and found some clothes about a mile from the Rapid River Road.

But still no hunter or body?

Sounds potentially like hypothermia.... Final stages people think they are too warm and start taking clothing off. frown.gif

how cold has it been up there, has it rained at all, that would contribute...but being a hunter you think he would have some survival skills..sounds fishy...

Kodiak,

Nothing fishy about it. It's just a very expansive area where one can get turned around and not end up coming upon a road or civilation for a very long distance.

My dad volunteered a day last weekend to help the search crews since he grew up about 12 miles from there. It is a sad situation but surely not fishy.

The Bemidji newspaper web site has the most up to date info on the search from what I've heard.

Having been deering hunting about thirty miles straight north of there for the last, wow, thirty years, I can very well see how an inexperienced hunter or one ill prepared can get lost and turned around. In the area I deer hunt in there's swamps that are bigger then most of the "woods" city people hunt in. This is a grave reminder that when we all go into the woods in the fall me MUST HAVE the basics. Knife, compass, fire and a mental picture of where the roads are in case something happens so you can formulate a plan as to what you are going to do to get out. This story doesn't sound fishy at all, just sad. It's grim but I'm sure that this weekend or next, the poor boy will be found.

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
