I spoke with UW Geology Museum director Rich Slaughter last night, and he
told me that WKOW-TV reporters never spoke with him or his staff. So, he
assured me that the report's suggestion that hunters are a less-than-honest
lot didn't come from the museum, even though it could be read that way. I
have known Rich for a number of years, and he is a straight shooter. He was
disappointed in the station's reportage, too, and offered his apologies to
anyone who might have been offended.
P.S. If anyone decides to take a day off from the field, I think the museum
still has a pretty nice array of meteorites on display (including a few you
don't see very often) at Weeks Hall on the UW campus in Madison.
