  • HUCK HUNTS: Pheasant is "deader than Elvis," he comments.
Mike Huckabee and other Republican candidates have been showing off their gun skills lately on Iowa pheasant hunts. But were these truly hunts, or canned shots?

Huckabee's foray with Rep. Steve King has stirred up noise on the Internet beause a clip circulated of his pheasant kill seems to some to indicate a bird was released by someone a few yards away before his shot. "If this is hunting, so is ordering a hot dog at a ballgame," snarked one commenter.

We provide the video. You decide.
