We were out duck hunting this year and this guy was walking by us carrying a Canada's Goose. And they werent in season yet. He was convinced that it was a duck.

So long story short it takes all kinds. I agree with Spitty and Skullcrusher. make sure you know what you are aiming at before pulling the triggger.

Where the heck do you shoot a boar in Alaska? Somebody's yard? Not that many places to hunt elk either...

About 30 years ago- deer hunting- had stopped by little country store at noontime to grab a pack of nabs and a drink. They were also a Game Check station. While there, guy walk in, wants to register his wild turkey he just shot.

Store went silent. He was holding a vulture by the feet. Store owner explained THAT was a Turkey Buzzard- not a turkey- and killing them was illegal. Hunter looked around, said "You guys are just trying to get my turkey away from me!", and left- with the buzzard.

Glad I was not at his place for Thanksgiving.

I was deer-hunting in my youth, and after a few hours of ghosting through the swamp in the rain, decided to walk a mile or so to a pond up on the high ground. As I shlumped toward it, I saw white. After sneaking to within 50 yards or so, there was a large, white goose sitting on the water. Food being food, and geese being in season, I found a tunnel to shoot through the brush and shot the damned thing right through the neck with a Savage 30-30. I couldn't do it again with a case of ammo. Dumb luck. I waded out, retrieved the corpse, and walked to my grandfather's farm in hopes that he would tell me I done good. He looked at it and grinned a little, said I'd made a Hell of a shot, and figured that it MIGHT be a Snow Goose, but he didn't think so. Took it home, gutted/plucked it and put it in the freezer.
A few days later in Math class, a kid whose family farm was near that pond mentioned that his little sister's goose was missing. Long story longer, his dad said he'd give me $5.00 for the goose. When I delivered it, he went nuts, accusing me of wringing the goose's neck. Worse yet, he told everybody he knew that I had stolen it and killed it. I still catch crap from folks up home over that!

LOL! "Get away from my deer! I shot it fair and square, and it's mine!!"
"You can have the damned deer. Just let me get my saddle off him!"

There was a guy I heard about from a Ranger who shot a farmers Mule, thinking it was an Elk!

Funny thing was the Ranger signed his elk tag.

Probably just wanted to keep him out of the woods with a loaded rifle...

Sounds like the same hunter my friend knows,he is from Colorado and was telling me about some guy who shot a donkey thinking it was an elk or muledeer or whatever he was hunting,and even when he got to it he still thought it was the right game,strapped it to his car and drove into town with his kill bragging to people,didn't take too long before someone was like"you dumb@ss,you shot a donkey"
