catch, should he take up hunting?
Two Arkansas fishermen will have to answer that question after
one of them hooked a shotgun while angling on a lake in northeast
Devin Sullivan and his stepfather were fishing on Craighead
Forest Lake when Sullivan started to reel in what he thought was a

The two men took the shotgun to a Jonesboro police station,
where the gun has been taken as evidence, Detective Sgt. Todd
Nelson told Jonesboro television station KAIT. Its serial number
will be checked to see if it has been reported stolen or involved
in any crimes.
Nelson offered a lighthearted observation, saying it may have
been thrown into the lake by "somebody that's mad at a spouse
about hunting too much."
