Deer gores NH hunter after being shot

CORNISH, N.H. (AP) — A 54-year-old New Hampshire deer hunter is recovering after an eight-point buck gored him with an antler after being shot.

Everett Gray of Cornish shot the deer near his home Thursday afternoon and then moved in to finish the kill with a knife.

He said that’s when the white-tail lunged at him, piercing his abdomen with an antler point and lifting him off the ground.

Gray told the Valley News the deer rammed its head into his stomach and pushed him down a slope before he managed to dislodge the antler point from his side.

While Gray was treated at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, his brother and a few friends went into the woods and dragged the buck back to his house and hung it in his garage.
