ABSTRACT
The article relates the rescue of a hunter who got lost in the Rocky Point Natural Resource Management Area by forest ranger Arthur Perryman. The man called the Ridge Hunter Check Station and a call was made to Perryman. Ranger Perryman called the hunter directly by phone and determined his exact location. He advised the hunter to follow the sound of Perryman's siren out of the woods. The hunter followed Perryman's advice and walked toward the sound of the patrol vehicle's siren until he was back on the road.
