A few weeks ago there was talk about approaching a wounded deer. Nov 06, 2007 SUBMITTED BY PAT LEFEMINE Wounded deer Gores Hunter A northwestern Colorado man was injured Sunday after a deer gored him while he was hunting near Craig, The Daily Sentinel reported today. Randy Hampton, spokesman with the Division of Wildlife's northwest region, said the man was hunting with at least one other person in the Hamilton area, about 15 miles south of Craig. The victim's name was not released. The incident was not reported to authorities, and the injured hunter was taken to Craig Memorial Hospital by someone in his hunting party. "We have been told the Craig hospital transferred the patient to St. Mary's (Hospital)," Hampton said. "My understanding is the injuries are significant." The DOW today said the hunter is being treated for puncture wounds at St. Mary's, but hospital officials haven't confirmed whether anyone is being treated for such injuries. Hampton said the incident appeared to be an accident, but it was unknown if the party was hunting on public or private land. "He or his hunting partner shot a buck deer, downed it and went to the buck," Hampton said. "The animal stood up and gored him." The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reported this story.
