MTN News reports that an unidentified 69-year-old hunter was rescued Monday after reportedly being trapped under his ATV for about 44 hours in the Clark Canyon area in Beaverhead County. He’s now in a Missoula hospital. On Sunday, at approximately 1 p.m., the Beaverhead County Sheriff’s Office was notified of an overdue Bitterroot man who was hunting and camping in the area.
