Three young duck hunters were checked and were found to have one life jacket for the three of them, one had no small game license, and one forgot to bring any licenses with him. When they went to pull the plug on the boat they pulled out a sock instead. They had forgotten to bring the boat plug and one of the hunters sacrificed his sock so they could still go hunting.
