Need a laugh today?

Two hunters were in the Arkansas woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls emergency services.

"My friend is dead. What can I do?"

"Take it easy," she says. "I can help. First let's make sure he's dead."

There is silence, then a shot is heard.
The guy's voice comes back on the line. "Ok, now what?"
