Carson Wentz learned that he’d been selected to be the new starting quarterback for the Eagles while he was goose hunting. 

Carson Wentz can be added to the list of athletes who also like to hunt. Raised in North Dakota, Wentz must have enjoyed the waterfowl hunting in that frigid northern state. Andrew Siciliano tweeted the news, stating:

Wentz also shared his hunting buddy on National Dog Day.

The starting position might come as surprise for many football fans. Sam Bradford was the original starting quarterback going into the season, but the Vikings acquired the injury-prone veteran, leaving the starting job open for Wentz.

Wentz was the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft and is the first quarterback the Eagles have ever selected in the first round since Donavan McNabb.

Hunters and Eagle fans will be able to watch his debut Sunday, when he takes on the Cleveland Browns.
