Dead Bull Elk Almost Kills Hunter

An Oregon hunter, Gary Heeter, was dragging his very nice bull  elk he shot back to camp in November of 2016 when something completely unexpected happened. While going up a hill, he fell backwards right on to the antlers of the elk he had just shot.

Heeter was given emergency first aid by the other people he was hunting with, and they were able to stop the bleeding before he was taken to area that he could be airlifted to a nearby hospital. Fortunately for him, he is around to tell the story about his bull elk that almost killed him AFTER it was dead.

It’s a good thing Heeter wasn’t hunting alone that day.  Wow.
