The chief forester in Wisconsin shot a turkey out of season and turned himself in to pay a $263 fine. Paul DeLong says he mistook a tuft of feathers for a beard thinking it was a male bird he could shoot legally. DeLong is head of the Department of Natural Resources Forestry Division. The DNR says a member of the public likely wouldn't be cited but since DeLong was a DNR employee he was. DeLong says he wanted to take responsibility for the error.
