Eagles Rookie QB Carson Wentz Lands Big Buck During Off Week

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz spent part of his off week bow hunting in his home state of North Dakota.

Wentz posted a picture on his Twitter account late Wednesday that showed himself in a field with a deer. He wrote “What do you do on your bye week? You get your first bow buck!”

Wentz hunted on land owned by former Microsoft executive and current North Dakota gubernatorial candidate Doug Burgum. Burgum issued a statement to The Associated Press saying, “Congrats Carson! Browns, Bears, Steelers and a bow buck. Great start!”

Burgum was referring to Eagles victories over Cleveland, Chicago and Pittsburgh. The Eagles have a bye this week, and face Detroit Oct. 9.
