I didnt see this posted??
A sheep hunter who followed his kill after it fell into a gorge couldn't get back out and had to be rescued over the weekend, according to the Alaska Air National Guard.
Troopers say Palmer resident Jason Stanton called his family Saturday to report he was in a gorge near Knik Glacier but had adequate provisions to last the night, and that he thought he could get out the next morning.
On Sunday, however, Stanton was unable to get out and called for help, troopers said. The Guard got the call at 12:50 p.m. and deployed an HH-60 Pave Hawk carrying pararescuemen from the 212th Rescue Squadron.
The Guardsmen hoisted Stanton up to the helo and brought him to safety, though he had to leave his sheep behind. Stanton reported no injuries.
