'Tis The (Turkey) Season For Drunken, Armed Folly

Which part of this story is most ridiculous -- that a hunter ostensibly mistook a 6-4, 230-pound man for a turkey, that the penalty assessed against a hunter for recklessly shooting a man was $567.44 (payable in installments, apparently), or that hunters continue to flock to woods they know to contain drunken, trigger-happy nitwits?

Related point: Drinking beer in a tree stand, waiting for an animal to wander by, hardly seems sporting.

As God as my witness...I thought turkeys could fly.

Not sporting? What, a tubby guy sitting in a tree waiting to blast a squirrel to smithereens doesn't remind you of Troy Polamalu or Mario Lemieux?

What's next? You gonna tell us Nascar drivers and professional wrestlers don't count as athletes either??

I tried deer hunting using a blackjack and a golf umbrella, but it turns out that is a felony.
