During deer season, some friends met up at the bar. The first guy, proud of what he accomplished during the week, says "I shot two 6 pointers and an 8 pointer." The second guy, not to be outdone, says "Nice, but I shot a 12 pointer." The last guy, says "I shot a family and their dog." None of his friends are shocked by what he said. Why?

"Hey Chad, what did you have for breakfast today?" "I shot a family and their dog." $\endgroup$
