A 14-year-old girl in Missouri shot and killed an elk by mistake. Seeing antlers coming out of a bush, she thought it was a deer. As for her what her punishment should be, who better to ask than our huge hunting community in the Cowboy State?

When young Abby Wilson realized what she’d done, she immediately called over her father, who immediately called officials. The governing state agency is undecided if they will be taking any further action beyond not letting the family keep the meat. (That is now refrigerated, likely for a needy family.)

Donald said that if his daughter gets fined, he'll pay it and they'll "deal with it."

Dad said IF. Now about that if.
