OK, so the "Hunting for Bambi" thing has "urban legend" written all over it.
So sayeth the pretty reliable Snopes website. Then again, Greg Krehbiel says someone else just came forward to say it's real.
Throw it in the "Who Knows?" file. If it's real, the owner might have a really good reason to downplay it, with reports of the normally laissez-faire Nevada government making angry noises. If it's fake, there would be good reasons to claim it's real.
The bigger point is that in five years, it--or something worse--will be real. Count on it.
