I know less about hunting than quantum physics but this just doesn’t look right. I mean, should I dress up like an elk on opening day? Tie a grouse on my head when I go stalking those upland game birds? Attach a big, white, fluffy tail to my derriere when hunting the numerous deer in Western Montana?
Isn’t that why the state makes you wear hunter-safety orange? So you don’t look like a critter asking to be shot?
This seems like a disaster in the making. Now as I mentioned, I’m one of the few Montanans, it seems, who doesn’t have hunting genes. Back in college, I went out with some buddies and took a few shots at some lucky ducks. Their quacks were replaced by a laughing sound as the pellets whisked way past their tail feathers.

Anyway, here’s the story from the Missoulian, although it originated from Brett French of the Billings Gazette. The photo credit says “Courtesy photo” so I’m not sure who to thank for its usage.

If I was better at Photoshop, I’d have an arrow poking out of the side of this guy’s hat.
