Matt Hughes normally comes through my area all the time during hunting season, and while I don't know him personally, I know a lot of people that do, including one of my cousins. According to all of the people I know, Hughes is a prick. I've heard that he and his brother often go to bars and try to start fights and act like school yard bullies. It could all be slanderous hearsay, but I'm just saying that if all that stuff I hear is true, then he very well could be responsible.
