Cheyenne, WY (KGWN)- An 85-year-old man who failed to return from a solo hunting trip in Teton County has been found dead. Sheriff Jim Whalen says searchers found the remains of Bernard Rietmann yesterday in the Granite Creek area of the Gros Ventre wilderness. Another hunter called authorities Tuesday morning to report he had found a rifle in the Boulder Creek area, which is one drainage away from where searchers found Rietmann's car. Searchers responded to that area Tuesday and soon located his remains.
Officials have not released a cause of death.
