PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Bend man remains hospitalized following a weekend hunting accident in the Maury Mountains. According to the Crook County Sheriff’s Office, 69-year-old Gary Heeter was dragging an elk behind his ATV, back to camp. When he started up a steep hill, the front end of the vehicle came up and Heeter was impaled by a horn as the ATV rolled backward. 

 

It took emergency crews several hours to reach the site, Saturday, due to its remote location, southeast of Prineville. Members of his hunting party tried to control the bleeding but the first deputy on-scene reported the man appeared to be going in to shock.
 
Heeter was flown to St. Charles Bend, where he is listed in Fair condition.
