The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says its conservation officers found a lost bowhunter and a friend who were tracking a wounded deer.
The agency says the two men had gone to Lame Duck Foot Access Area in Gladwin County's Bourret Township on Friday evening to try to find a deer that the bowhunter shot the night before.
As darkness fell, the men lost their way out of the hunting area, which is located within 11,000 acres of state forest land.
Around 1 a.m. Saturday, DNR conservation officers Steve Lockwood and Josh Wright were sent to the area by Gladwin County central dispatch. Two sheriff's deputies also worked on the rescue effort. Lockwood and Wright found the men about 6 a.m. Saturday.
Lockwood says the men were in good condition.
