Camp cooks and alcohol ...

Just to prove that camps cooks and alcohol don't mix, read this story about camp cook Jimmy Mitchell, who allegedly spent "his time during (a recent) hunting trip intoxicated and poaching."

While on a corporate hunting trip, a drunken camp cook allegedly shot another member of the party in the face, leading to a lawsuit against one of the nation's largest animal health product suppliers. [click to read story]
Events such as this only serves to give camp cooks a bad reputation. While I'm certain that pertinent facts surrounding the case will soon be revealed, most camp cooks I know are men and women who carefully guard their collective reputations.

My only question: Why didn't the organizers of the trip send Mitchell packing when his behavior came to light?
