Gresham man hurt on solo bow-hunting trip rescued at Columbia River Gorge

September 25, 2011

A 33-year-old Gresham man, who was hurt on a solo bow-hunting excursion at the Columbia River Gorge, was rescued by the National Guard Sunday evening.

The man sent a distressed text message to the people who were supposed to pick him up on Sunday, the third and final day of his solo trip near the Moffett Creek trail. He indicated he got lost heading back to the meet-up location and had hurt himself in a fall, Multnomah County Sheriff’s Lt. Derrick Peterson said.

A search and rescue effort then started at 3 p.m. and he was found by a National Guard helicopter at about 6:30 p.m., Peterson said. The man suffered a large gash on his left knee and took himself to the hospital.

It is unclear what he was hunting or if he caught anything, Peterson said.
