    Hunter shot with arrow dies, partner arrested

    DESCHUTES COUNTY, Ore. (KOIN) — A deer hunter was arrested Monday morning after he fatally shot his hunting partner with an arrow, deputies said.

    Michael S. Pekarek, 52, called 911 at 7:40 a.m. and said he shot his partner while they were bow hunting near La Pine, according to Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.

    Dispatchers told Pekarek how to perform CPR, which he reportedly did until authorities arrived. Jeffrey L. Cummings, 45, was pronounced dead on the scene.

    Investigators learned Pekarek and Cummings were bow hunting on USFS 9736 when they saw a mule deer on the west side of the road and got out of their car. Pekarek reportedly saw the deer and was ready to shoot when the animal moved out of view.

    He allegedly turned with his bow pointed toward Cummings to tell him the deer was moving his way. That’s when deputies said Pekarek released his arrow, striking Cummings in the abdomen. Cummings fell down and later died, deputies said.

    Pekarek was arrested on suspicion of negligent homicide. His bail is set at $50,000.

    The investigation continues.

    I was squirrel hunting years ago with a buddy that was new to hunting and just got his hunting license. He carried his 22 rifle pointing straight forward and I kept telling him to point it towards the ground when carrying it. We were in the woods walking around and as I turned to look at him it was pointing at me, then as he turned to say, "over there" the rifle turned away from me and went off. That was a close one, but I don't take him with me anymore. When something like that happens I'm done with a person. Won't give him a second chance.

    How sad.
    I also have a question. What the heck was this: " were bow hunting on USFS 9736 when they saw a mule deer on the west side of the road and got out of their car.". I've never bowhunted out of a car while driving down the road. Sounds very difficult.

    Sounds like road hunting with a crossbow. No way he was at full draw with compound and turned to his buddy. What an idiot.
    NOBODY EVER SHOT BAMBI....they shot his momma.
