The Cass County Sheriff's Office says a missing hunter was located this week after he spent five nights lost in the Chippewa National Forest, braving heavy rain and temperatures ranging from 37 to 82 degrees.

Patrick Allen-Robert Feiner, 57, of South St. Paul had set out to go hunting in a remote area north of Remer last Thursday. He was reported missing on Monday, and deputies began a search at that time.

Sheriff Tom Burch says Feiner was found after a search resumed Tuesday in a wet, swampy area that is extremely difficult to access. He was treated on the scene and then taken to the Deer River Hospital for evaluation.

Feiner's condition was not released.

Sheriff Burch reminded hunters to bring a detailed map, compass, and survival kit, and to always let someone know where you are going and when you plan to return.

This was at least the fourth outdoorsman rescued in the Northland in the past week. A hunter was rescued last Thursday after spending several nights lost in the Nemadji State Forest in Pine County. A missing hunter was found after being lost a few hours on Saturday in Sawyer County, Wis., and a missing fisherman was found Tuesday in Gogebic County, Mich.
