Despite differences in their interpretation of the Constitution, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan and Antonin Scalia apparently share a common interest–hunting.
An article from The Hill, Justice Kagan described a recent hunting trip she took with Justice Antonin Scalia to a crowd at the Aspen Ideas Festival–a trip where she actually tagged a deer. She also said it wasn’t the first time the two traveled into the field together.
“I shoot birds with him two or three times a year now,” Kagan said. “At the end of last year we had been bird shooting 4 or 5 times … he said to me, ‘It’s time for big-game hunting.’ We actually went out to Wyoming this past fall to shoot deer and antelope, and we did … I shot myself a deer.”
The article went on to say Justice Kagan’s hunting forays stem from a promise she made to a lawmaker to hunt with Justice Scalia if confirmed.
“He thought it was hilarious, he thought it was a total crackup,” Kagan said of Scalia’s response when she attempted to fulfill the promise.
