ANCHORAGE- Two brothers from Craig have been rescued after family members reported them overdue from a deer-hunting trip in the Tongass National Forest on Prince Of Wales Island.
38-year-old David Duncan and 24-year-old Berton Duncan were rescued early Sunday by the Coast Guard after one of the brother shot a flare gun.
The brothers were supposed to have returned from their trip Friday evening.
Alaska State Troopers say the brothers told rescuers that foggy conditions cause them to become disoriented.
Neither brother was injured.
