(Tillamook, OR) -- A hunter with a late season cow elk tag told Oregon State Police he was overcome with "elk fever" when he shot four elk. He had permission in January from a landowner to hunt near Nehalem. The 66-year-old man fired at the herd in the direction of Highway 101 and hit at least four elk. One of them died and troopers killed two that were mortally wounded. A fourth elk drowned in the Nehalem River. The hunter turned himself in and said he was sorry. He's been cited for shooting from a roadway, and illegally killing elk. The investigation continues.
