CHALLIS, Idaho -

A 72-year-old elk hunter who fell from a horse in a central Idaho wilderness area has been flown by helicopter to a medical facility in Boise for treatment.
   
The Custer County Sheriff's Office tells KIFI-TV that Dave Miller of Tehachapi, California, was flown from that area Sunday afternoon.
   
Authorities say Miller fell from a horse in the Jim McClure-Jerry Peak Wilderness Area.
   
Rain and fog initially prevented a Life Flight helicopter from locating Miller but a ground team found him Sunday afternoon and the helicopter then transported him out of the rugged area.
   
Authorities didn't release the extent of Miller's injuries.
