I don't know but it seems like it would be hard to explain to the game warden why you built a snowman in the middle of the wilderness with corn for eyes and a carrot for a nose.

Warden: Who's Bob?
You (pointing at the snowman): Why right here officer, don't you see him? He would like to shake your hand, that's why his hand out is sticking out. He thinks your quite rude for not having shaken his hand yet. (Try to say these lines with the most crazed wildman look you can muster).
With any luck, the warden will realize that he is in the sticks with a looney tune who has a snowman for a hunting buddy. Personally, if I was the warden, I'd walk away slowly.....after of course shaking Bob's hand.
