(Newser) – An Oregon hunter found himself in a dangerous situation after accidentally impaling himself on his own kill, the Oregonian reports. Gary Heeter, 69, was dragging an elk carcass behind his ATV up a steep hill Saturday when the vehicle flipped, impaling Heeter in the back on the elk's antler. Members of his hunting party worked to stop the bleeding until a helicopter evac could land in the remote Maury Mountains area and take Heeter to a hospital in Bend. KATU describes Heeter as in fair condition. (Read more Oregon stories.)
