A hunting guide broke his leg Saturday afternoon on the Tsirku River face of Porcupine Peak and had to be airlifted out.

Bret Bohn, 29, of Anchorage slipped and broke his leg while leading Chris Kilbane, 58, of Minnesota and Reto Widmer, 33, of Switzerland. The trio was also carrying a mountain goat they shot, according to Alaska State Troopers.

The group was not equipped to spend the night on the mountain. The U.S. Coast Guard sent in a Sitka-based helicopter to carry them out mid-evening. The Haines search-and-rescue team was on standby for a Sunday morning rescue in case the helicopter trip proved impractical, the state troopers’ report said.

The helicopter transported Kilbane and Widmer to the Haines airport where they were checked and released. The helicopter then took Bohn to Juneau for medical treatment.
