From USA Today:  A Michigan hunter caught shooting an illegal deer at first denied doing so, but then confessed and put the blame on his wife…

“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 told the conservation officer.

The hunter was cited for killing a spike buck in an area with antler-point restrictions.

No word on how he and his venison-loving wife are getting along.
