That was no turkey, that was his friend

A 29-year-old Maine man shot his 30-year-old friend with a 12-gauge shotgun while out turkey hunting. Surgeons removed pellets from the face, neck and upper left torso of the victim. The wounds were described as serious.
"This is a case of mistaken identity of a target," said a spokesman for the Maine Warden Service. "Wild turkeys have very sharp eyesight. To hunt them effectively, hunters usually dress in camouflage. That makes the hunters very difficult to see."
Ohh shoot.
