Lifeline called in at Michaux on rifle opener.....
What happened in Michaux St forest out off of Thompson Hollow road in Shippensburg on the first day of rifle in the afternoon?
I hunted in upper strasburg in the morning and came home around 2, ate lunch and went back out at 3 to my truck (my property is off Whitmer) and heard a noise I hadn't heard since Iraq, a chopper idling. I hop in my truck to go walk around an area off of Thompson Hollow road and in the clearing by it there was the helicopter and a DCNR explorer, ambulances, and firetrucks and everyone looked busy. I asked one of my neighbors what happened and he said he heard a guy fell out of a treestand. I looked in the local papers but didn't read anything about it. Just curious as to what happened and if the guy was ok. It looked pretty serious from the amount of responders there.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
