The 63-year-old man was reported missing from a camp on Hornick Road about 160 kilometers (100 miles) north of Thunder Bay.  He had been dropped off at a tree stand at 5 p.m. Saturday and did not return by the end of the evening.

Members of the Ontario Provincial police's North West Region Emergency Response Team and the OPP Canine Unit conducted a search for the hunter.

Just after 9 a.m. Monday, rescuers began using a sound beacon, which allowed the hunter to find his way out of the bush.

The man walked to the command post on his own.  He did not need any medical attention, but was thirsty and hungry.
