Yeah, I wouldn't admit it either.

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — It's a complicated story, but a Thurston County, Wash., man says he managed to shoot himself in the head with a .22-caliber rifle while fishing for salmon.A sheriff's report says the man told deputies he fired a shot into the Deschutes River on Sunday afternoon but the bullet ricocheted off a rock and hit him in the temple. When he scratched the spot with his finger, he says the bullet fell out of his head and into the river.
The tale came to light although the man went home and refused to tell his girlfriend how he had been injured. After he left again, she called 911. When deputies pulled over the man's pickup truck, he told them what happened.
The Olympian reports that the man was treated at an area hospital and released. The newspaper says the man was not cited for any violations.

But then there was the story of an OSP cadet that shot himself in the foot and claimed it was a sniper. Ironically, I think it was on the Deschutes river as well.
