Wear hunter orange
Gregory Gabrisch, age 31, was killed from what is being called an accidental shot by another hunter. The body of Gabrisch was found after a 10-hour search by rescue teams.
According to authorities, Ronald J. Morosko was muzzleloader hunting with his friend, Slade Pepke, at the time of the incident. An arrest affidavit states that Morosko and Pepke had been calling and moving in on what they believed to be multiple bulls. Morosko moved into a treed area to prepare for a shot.
“When he saw white in the pines, he took a shot at what he thought was an elk,” Dolores County Sheriff Don Wilson wrote in an affidavit.
