    Hopefully there will be a very stiff fine.

    I used to have a Jeep Wrangler with a 9000 Warn Winch on it. I used it a number of times to help out other people but over the years I only used it twice to pull myself out of a bind. When I think back on it the only reason I got in the predicament that I was in is because I had the winch. I knew no matter how stupid it was I had a tool to get me out. I feel like most of these idiots that have to be rescued go into the bush without the required skills or common sense knowing that there is always someone there to put their lives on the line to save their sorry asses!!!

    Well, the rule of poaching areas without a permit is to not need rescue :)

    I can't imagine the amount of snow. Not sure exactly where he was, but if it was anywhere near the waterfall there was about 10-20 feet of ice on the sides. Not to even mention how cold it was
