    I dont know why, but every time I hear about a hunter dying I automatically think they accidently got shot by another hunter. But this guy was solo, so it probably wasnt the case. Could he have gotten injured and succumbed to the elements?

    I'm betting he had a heart attack, covid blood clot, or the like and died quickly. If he just broke an ankle or something, I'd have expected him to be able to call for help on his cell... but I don't know what kind of cell coverage they have in that area. Around here you lose cell coverage before you get very far into the woods so idk.

    That's a really good point, didn't think of it. But doesn't Washington State require hunters to wear something orange for safety? I know not all States do.

    I almost brought that up when typing (the orange thing) because I've always thought the same. It's to keep other hunters from shooting you by accident, so they know you're a person.

    But I was thinking back to the many pictures my dad and his friends took while hunting, and none of them wore anything bright, it was all camo. I wonder if it is a law, but people don't abide by it. We may never know if this guy did or not...

    So in his state, he was required to wear it.

    That doesn't mean that he was though. Hunters break the laws and rules all of the time.

    Oh I know, that's why I mentioned earlier that not everyone follows the rules. You would think he would, being a fire chief.

    I am going with he didn't and that's why it took so long to find him.

    No way. Have you ever known a Fire Chief IRL? They are seriously some of the most safety conscious people you'll ever meet, sometimes annoyingly so. It's a lifestyle for them. I understand there are exceptions to every rule, but chances are very high that Chief Schreckengost WAS wearing blaze orange.

    Do we know what the terrain was like? Off to Google....

    Oh my. THIS is why they didn't find him.

    1/2 square mile radius from the Cliffdell area where his truck was found:
