Williston deer hunter found safe
WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Searchers using night-vision gear helped find a deer hunter who spent a night along the Missouri River.
The Bismarck Tribune reported the men separated to bow hunt from different tree stands. His partner reported Trowbridge missing when he didn’t meet up after dark.
Authorities and friends searched the woods and determined Trowbridge got turned around and walked away from his vehicle after seeing an arrow on the ground pointing in the direction he walked.
He was found along the river’s shoreline before dawn on Tuesday morning when he heard a search boat, turned on his headlamp and was spotted.
