Micah Cox, the tall guy on the left who serves as commander of the Challis Unit of Custer County Search and Rescue (SAR), accepts a donation from Idaho Outfitters and Guides Association (IOGA) representatives Louise Stark and Travis Bullock of
Challis. Stark, of White Cloud Outfitters and Bullock, of Mile High Outfitters, said outfitting is a big part of Custer County 's history, and a donation to Custer County SAR makes sense. Both outfitters and SAR volunteers work to keep the hunting and fishing public safe. The Salmon River Chapter of IOGA serves both Custer and Lemhi counties. The outfitters' chapter holds two fundraiser per year, a dinner in March and a barbecue at the Salmon Select Horse Sale in April. Both fundraisers did well this year, so outfitters donated to SAR units in each county and scholarships at Challis and Salmon high schools

In the picture he accepts a donation from Idaho Outfitters and Guides Association (IOGA) representatives Louise Stark and Travis Bullock of Challis. Stark, who runs White Cloud Outfitters with partner Mike Scott, and Bullock, who runs Mile High Outfitters, said outfitting is a big part of Custer County, and a donation to Custer County SAR makes sense. Both outfitters and SAR volunteers work to keep the hunting and fishing public safe and have collaborated on rescues in the past. Bullock himself is a SAR volunteer. The Salmon River Chapter of IOGA serves both Custer and Lemhi counties. The chapter holds two fundraiser a year, a dinner in March and a barbecue at the Salmon Select Horse Sale in April. Both fundraisers did well this year, so outfitters donated $750 to SAR units in each county and $1,000 to scholarship funds at Challis and Salmon high schools.
