Tourist who died hunting may not have been aware of rules - Coroner rules? they arent really rules, they are guidelines, and without knowing how he died, you wouldnt necessarily have saved him or found him anyway, he may have died before he had a chance to set his beacon off, either a steep fall or being swept down a flooded river could have prevented him having time to set his beacon off. signing hut log books would have pinned down the area he was in better increasing the chances of finding him, but his body could be buried under a river bed. and in such rough country,if he fell down a bluff it would still be very hard to find him if you didnt have a reasonable idea of where he was when he had an accident. he was a hunter targeting a specific area and may have been after specific target species that live in steep areas... would information about the dangers disuade him? its debateable, steep terrain is dangerour. and thats pretty common sense, although he may not have been aware of how dangerous the rivers could be "A coroner says it's unclear whether a tourist who died while hunting on steep West Coast terrain was aware of the safety rules he failed to follow. No trace of Swedish man Hans Tornmarck has been found after he set out on a solo alpine hunting trip near Fox Glacier in 2017. Deputy chief coroner Anna Tutton says Tornmarck didn't fill in the intentions book at his last hut, and did not carry a personal locator beacon. Her report reminded alpine hunters to set out in pairs, carry two-way communications devices, and always consider the terrain risks when recovering fallen animals. The report stated: "Given that, over the past 10 years, the most common cause of fatalities for alpine hunters has been falls, resulting in severe trauma, MSC recommends to all alpine hunters that they take a cautious approach to route finding and always consider the fall line for any animal they intend to shoot, so they are not exposed to high consequence terrain when recovering the animal." Tutton also asked the Department of Conservation to improve hazard and risk information for visitors."
