TILLAMOOK, Ore. (AP) – Authorities say a bow hunter was killed when an elk he had wounded charged at him and gored him in the neck with its antlers.

Oregon State Police say 66-year-old Mark David of Hillsboro, Oregon, was archery hunting Saturday on private property in in Tillamook when he wounded a bull elk, but wasn’t able to find it before dark.

KOIN reports that on Sunday morning, David and the landowner searched for the bull and wounded it with a bow when they found it.

However, it charged David and gored him in the neck with its antlers.

The landowner tried to help David but he succumbed to his injuries.
