We'll have to wait a bit for details. Apparently this individual was too weak to speak or drink water when found, meaning SAR got to him, literally, in the nick of time.

I noticed that his original problem was having his food cache and equipment eaten and destroyed by a Bear. When this happened he had the option of canoeing/walking out and decided not to.

Since he lasted more than 30 day after his food ran out, he survived exactly the way that should be expected. Eventually Even with proper Fasting Technique you will run out of fat to burn and then go on to burn muscle. After that starts you get weaker every day.

He did well, I hope after he recovers more he does a full interview

good comments here.
looks like one big weakness was that he never told anybody to keep an eye on his schedule - he went overdue and wasnt missed for a while.

Canadian SAR received some adverse comments on this site recently. Good to see they got this man out in time.

Now this is a great story to hear, and read. Would love to get more details as it progresses.

solo adventure? Be extra careful - and use a PLB with check-in abilities.

The tiny trickle of information we have suggests the dog went after the bear. We don't know how the dog actually met his/her end.

The well-fed comment-o-sphere, naturally, has already proclaimed judgement. A mob with torches and pitchforks is being duly assembled.

As far as I can tell, we really have ZERO credible information. The 'papers can't even decide if he's a canoeist or overland trekker.

This is possibly shaping up to be the most desperate situation we have seen. The gentleman involved does not seem to be a rookie. I sincerely hope he recovers and can shed an instructive light on his terrible ordeal.
