A hunter from Kansas had to be airlifted to West Park Hospital after being thrown from a mule Saturday morning, a sheriff’s spokesman said.

Scott Hunsinger, 52, suffered neck and pelvic injuries in the incident in the Eagle Creek area of the North Fork, sheriff’s spokesman Lance Mathess said.

Hunsinger had a quiver of arrows on his back.

One of the arrows pierced the mule’s back, causing it to rear back and throw the man.

It was the second week in a row S&R had to airlift an injured hunter out of the field.

Last week Timothy Elder, 52, of Cody was airlifted to Billings after being injured by his horse in the Boulder Basin area.
