Missing hunter search...

33 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.

I heard this as well! What a sad story!

That area is where I grew up hunting, and it's an easy place to get lost if you stray away from the roads without a compass!

I hope they find the guy soon!!

Yeah, it sounds that way. I was up in Thief River Falls on Sunday for my nieces birthday party, and it was the talk of the town.

I heard a lot of rumors and speculation.

The thing I do know for sure is that people were discouraged from hunting the area, and they were talking about getting a volunteer search party together. This will need numerous people, as they plan on covering a very large area.

Sounds like they may be looking for volunteers again soon...

They are going to notify the public when they need them... Hope the guy and his dog are still alive but with the cooler temps at night that makes it tougher to survive...

There are various sites from Northern Minnesota that they will transport volunteers from. In Bemidji area they will load the volunteers up on school busses and take them up toward fourtown. The loading site will be Bemidji High School.

They mentioned that they don't want anyone showing up at the search site or their own you must pre-register.. Also no 4 wheelers...

They beileve they may have found a pack of cigareetes and a lighter that may belong to the lost man... I'm not 100% positive of those details, but we should find out tomm. in the local newspaper... We don't get a Monday paper in this town...

The Pioneer this morning indicated that his coveralls, shirt, socks and lip balm were found Monday. That does not sound good.

Don't want to bring the paranormal into this thread.

I am not saying I believe in this stuff or not.

But it sounds like this movie I have seen long ago

Per Bemidji Pioneer this morning, ground search has been suspended due to 2" of snow covering footprints and reducing scent. Apparently a blood hound on Monday tracked a substantial distance from where the clothes were found before it lost the trail. Periodic air searches will continue.

when hypothermia sets in the mind does strange things. It wouldn't suprise me if he dropped the clothes himself in the confused state he would be in.

Walleyegal is right on. It is actually very common for hypothermia victims to remove their clothing. They get past the point of shivering and think they feel warm. Not a good sign at all.

I haven't seen anything in the newspaper. I thought that with the good weather there would be a lot of hunters out, increasing the likelihood that he would be found, but apparently not so far.

Have not heard anything lately either, except the family has been out looking still. i just hope they don't have to be the ones to find him.

Per Saturday Pioneer, search has been hampered due to flooding caused by beaver dams. Dogs picked up a scent, but lost it due to pooled water. Search will be resumed after a hard freeze.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
