PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A hunter impaled by the horn of an elk was rescued in the Maury Mountains on Saturday, according to deputies.

The Crook County Sheriff’s Office said Gary Heeter, 69, of Bend was involved in an ATV rollover crash, and that’s when he was impaled by the elk horn.

Deputies said prior to the crash Heeter had been dragging the elk back to a hunting camp behind an ATV. When he started to drive up a steep hill, the front end of the ATV came up, and Heeter was impaled by the elk horn when the vehicle rolled backward.

  1. SO hilarious! If only there were video. An elk-murdering, ATV (Asshole Transport Vehicle)-driving, camo-clad psycho-clown gets such a perfect comeuppance! Sad, though, that an elk had to die to get his from-beyond-the-grave revenge. Also sad are those first two words of the headline: “hunter rescued.” Too bad.
