After an 8 day search and rescue effort, Robert J Carter of Kalispell, was found deceased on Sunday afternoon. His body was found at the conversion of a logged area and a wooded area five miles north of highway 43 in the Big Hole National Battlefield Area. Authorities found him only one mile uphill from where he had parked his truck. The cause of death is not obvious, so medical coroners are taking Carter for further investigation before releasing any statements.
Carter had been hunting alone in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest and had last contacted his wife on September 16th.
Carter was 53 years old and worked for Plum Creek Timber Company and was a pole vaulting coach for Whitefish High for the past 13 years. With deep roots in the community, the search for Carter was perhaps the largest in number of volunteer searchers. Friends of Carter said that he was in excellent physical condition, a reliable friend, and one of the funniest humans they had ever known. He will be missed.
