Oregon Man Impaled by Elk He Hunted and Killed Just Minutes Earlier
While driving up a steep hill dragging the elk’s carcass on a four-wheeler, Heeter’s ride flipped over and he rolled backward, straight onto the antler of the dead animal, KVAL reports.
Sheriff’s Sgt. Ryan Seaney said he wasn’t alone though – his hunting party tried halting the bleeding and called 911, then first responders were able to make it to the remote scene via helicopter.
After a lengthy trip carrying the injured man to the helicopter, Heeter made it to a nearby hospital and is now in stable condition.
Spooky is an understatement for how that sharp-horned elk almost took its killer down to join it in the grave.
