Authorities in southeast Idaho say a 79-year-old man from Oakley died after successfully harvesting an elk.

Paul Schiffman did not return home after on October 31, 2019, north of Soda Springs. A search team used cell phone records to determine his approximate location and found him the following morning.

The Carbon County Sheriff’s Department said it appeared Schiffman harvested an elk and was beginning to field dress it when he suffered some sort of medical condition and passed away.
