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...

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...

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.

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.
    • Rachelkate21
      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!
