16-Year-Old SD Boy Survives 16 Hours In Forest

November 15, 2012, 8:54 AM

RAPID CITY, SD -

A 16-year-old South Dakota boy who became lost while hunting in Black Hills National Forest says he was scared but still managed to hatch a survival plan.

Austin DuVall, of Rapid City, became lost on Nov. 3 while hunting with his father. He says his hunter's instinct kicked in and he chased after a deer, and soon found himself alone and without his bearings.

Austin says he relied on skills he learned in a hunter safety course and from Gary Paulsen's teen-survival story "Hatchet." He eventually found a stream and followed it to an occupied cabin, finding safety after 16 hours.

Austin says he hopes others learn from his experience. He says make a plan and stick to it - and keep a level head.
