WILSALL, Montana — If you come across a place called the Crazy Mountains, maybe it’s best to stay away.
Montana police discovered the body of an elk hunter who had gone missing within the Crazy Mountains in central Montana just a mile from where he had last been seen about a week earlier.
Officials say 60-year-old Mark Rollins of Decorah, Iowa appeared to have fallen off a cliff to his death.
The Park County Sheriff’s office said Rollins had last been seen by a group of hunters on Sept. 20. But when they returned a week later and found his truck still parked where he left it, they grew concerned and called police.
When investigators contacted Rollins’ wife she said he had contacted police in Iowa after her husband had been late in returning home.
Rollins, who owned a restaurant in his hometown called Ede’s & the Angry Pickle, was described as an experienced backcountry hunter. According to the group of hunters who had spotted him, was well equipped and prepared for an extended stay. He was in good health, so authorities believe the fall that resulted in his death was an accident
