Minnesota Hunter Rescued From Freezing Muck

From the Star Tribune:

Peter Schmidt of Orrock Township [Minnesota] was hunting in the Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge near his home Saturday, the opening of firearms deer hunting season, and heard 26-year-old Matthew Capko of Big Lake calling for help, the Sherburne County Sheriff's Office said. . .

Rescue personnel arrived and pulled Capko out with a life line. . .

"Had Schmidt not found him when he did, the results could have been far different," the sheriff's office said in a news release.

Kudos to all involved for the rescue.
I'd say Mr. Capko owes them all a beer.
