KREMMLING — Cold, shivering, and lost, a father and son hunting party fired three consecutive shots into the air, the universal hunter's SOS, on Sunday morning after spending a sleepless night in an abandoned and run-down cabin with little supplies and no overnight gear.

The two hunters, 52 year-old Paul and 16 year old Kyle Schultz, made their last contact with the other members of their hunting party in the afternoon on Saturday, Nov. 16, when they told their hunting partners they had spotted the elk they were after in the Wheatly Creek area and were going to pursue their prey.

As night fell, the members of the hunting party began to worry that they had not heard more from their partners in the field and attempted to call them, with no answer.
