I'm sure that scared the hell out of him, but it must have brought much relief and closure to the wife of the bow hunter. Hopefully his end was peaceful surrounded by nature, rather than a fall or some such.

That is a bit strange?  I worked one summer on the Payette National forest, part of it butts up against a wilderness area,  the whole region is difficult!  I remember a smoke jumper team needing something like 6 weeks to extract after they accomplished their mission.
