I've straightened out a tackoed rim in the field by pumping up the tire hard and then holding the wheel in front of me with my hands on either side of the wheel. I lift the wheel until it's horizontal and then give it a hard rap against a flat rock. That springs the rim back. I repeat doing that until the rim is very nearly true again.
