The Ultimate Redneck Hunting Trophy


Just when you thought you’d heard all the redneck jokes possible, something pops up in real life that causes you to make that Tim Allen grunting noise.

Apparently, there is a problem in Tennessee with hunters stalking and shooting game from moving vehicles because the practice is prohibited. Makes sense, doesn’t it? First off, a hunter should be clear of the roadway before pulling the trigger, right? Then, it just adds to the danger if you’re actually still in the vehicle when you squeeze off a shot or two. Thirdly, you just might accidentally step on that pesky gas peddle and, if you’ve happened to mistakenly leave the vehicle running whilst the gears are in drive, the result could be quite messy, especially if you miss the varmint.

However, there’s one small caveat to this prohibition in Tennessee…It’s apparently allowable if you happen to be shooting at a whale. Yep, if you happen to pull up alongside one of those nasty critters at the vast amount of oceanside beach in Tennessee, help yourself to all the blubber you can get as long as you’re a crack shot.

My question is, if you can shoot a whale in Tennessee, what happens if you run over one? Will they let you keep it if it’s roadkill instead of freshly killed via gunshot?
