Missing hunter search...

Recommended Posts

big drift

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...

Here is the details from the Radio this AM...

If you want to help you need to call 218-333-8320...

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...

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.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
