Hunter caught killing an illegal deer tries to blame his wife

Reminiscent of the Trumpkin congressman who blamed his wife for his illegal campaign expenses, we've now got a hunter who's pointing his trigger finger at his wife for his illegal killing of a deer.

When the Michigan hunter was caught with an illegal spike horn buck, he at first tried to deny it. But when a conservation officer cornered him, saying there was a witness to the deer shooting, he hung his head and blamed his wife, saying, "The honest-to-God truth is that my wife wants deer meat and if I come home without any she’ll get really mad at me.”

The hunter was forced to hand over the deer corpse, which he had stashed behind a house, and "enforcement action was taken,” according to CBS.
