Sinkhole kills hunter

Hunter dies after falling into sinkhole

WAYNESVILLE, Mo. — A bizarre accident killed a deer hunter while he was walking in a wooded area in rural Pulaski County. The incident occurred Monday evening while a local man was bow hunting near his home off Red Oak Lane near the Buckhorn area.

Around dusk, the hunter told his wife that he just shot a deer and was returning to the woods to try to track the animal.  When the man failed to return home, his wife reported him missing to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department.

Law enforcement officers and firefighters then began a late-night search, which ended shortly after 3 a.m., when the hunter’s body was discovered at the bottom of a large sinkhole just a short distance from his home.

The sinkhole is about the size of a car at ground level and is estimated to be 65-70 feet deep. After examining the scene and speaking with the property owner, investigators assume the sinkhole recently opened, possibly during the heavy rains last month.  They don’t think the hunter saw the opening before falling into it, due to it being hidden behind tall foliage, along with the existing low light conditions.

  1. I am so tired! Emotionally drained! I feel like telling the world–STOP–Christ is Coming–Are you saved? I pick up on so much confusion, evil, meanness, to the point I have to withdraw to renew in the Lord! I think that is what I will be doing for awhile….finances are a mess…job sucks….ain’t going to lie folks……this sister is tired and sick of job hopping trying to find out where I fit in! I just “can’t” keep going at this pace….no spring chicken and I don’t know what….Holy Spirit…….pleaseeeeeeeeeeee I need a financial breakthrough…… know I am being tried at work and I’ve shown respect and love best I can towards person……I just can’t go on like this anymore………I’m spent….


    • Oh sister, I’m praying for you! I too feel that way, really. We can’t give up, Paul tells us to finish the race. Our words are very much like the Apostle Pauls words, but know that many in the faith are going through the same thing. I am praying for a renewed strength for you, so often when we feel alone, and that we can’t go on, that’s the very time that Christ is holding on to us, just a little longer, just a little longer, He will see us through!! May God give you a special blessing today, we can’t give up, I too have felt like turning in the towel, like shutting down the blog and just resting in the arms of God, He will guide us, I have to trust Him. I too have been met with hatred, I have been threatened with law suits, and I too am tired, but He will give us the strength.


      • Galatians 6:9
        9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
        It must be your prayers I picked up on in the Holy Spirit today early A.M. HUGS! I know you are right! Let us agree in Faith in witness of the Lord to Pray for one another continuously w/o ceasing. I will be more into God’s Word and posting mainly on
        I have to pull back from world events unless directed otherwise by the Lord. Might do short videos I’ll bring from others who are alert to world events. I love you all with Love of Christ…please believe me! I just have to renew my strength in the Lord as it that time of the year when the enemy likes to through spears and not arrows(study a roman soldiers gear and u’ll see what I mean). God bless

  2. So Many sinkholes one has to think of the biblical story’s when God opened the earth and it swallowed up people and houses…..(Numbers 16:30-33)…(Deuteronomy 11:6)…….For people not to notice.YES some have not…Our Lord will come as a thief in the night.The weather has never been like this all at one time! I Pray eyes be opened and ears be unstopped before it’s too late.


Rev. 22:20 'Surely I am coming quickly, Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus!'
