When Roger Custer of Levittown, Pa., returned home from a deer hunt, he handed a Powerball lottery ticket he’d purchased to his wife and asked her to check it “to see how many millions we’ve won.”

She checked it — and, much to her astonishment and delight, found that she and her husband were $50 million richer. After taxes, they took home a check for more than $33 million.

The Philadelphia Inquirer has the full story.

When asked what he planned to do with his winnings, Custer said what any other red-blooded outdoorsman would say — “spend more time hunting and fishing.” Gotta love it.
