    A hunter in Arkansas died after a deer he had shot attacked him, according to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

    “I’ve worked for the Game and Fish Commission for 20 years, and it’s one of the more unusual things that’s happened," Keith Stephens, the agency's chief of communications, told NBC News.

    The victim, Thomas Alexander, 66, shot a buck with a muzzleloader while hunting near Yellville, Arkansas, Stephens said.

    Alexander, an experienced hunter, was by himself but called a family member about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and said he had shot a deer. More than an hour later, he contacted another family member and told them he was injured. That family member called 911.
