    Dropped a dink 7 pt this afternoon with the old smoke pole, at 1645 hours......same time I dropped the first doe of the season this past Tuesday afternoon.......

    Second legal buck I have seen this season, and 3 were running together!! The one I dropped was the best of the 3......

    No Wall hanger, and I'll probably catch some flack when I post the picture, but this is the first buck I have killed since 2006 (it was 144 4/8's), but Retired folks can get hungry and I've never figured out how to cook horns, where ya could eat em!!

    Pics and story tomorrow, titled...........

    No Brag....Just Fact.......

    Night all, I'm worn out!:biggrin:

    Too late in the season to be catching flack over shooting a dink. Congrats!:thumb:

    I just think that the animal deserves more respect than to be called a dink. I promise you that if I got a chance, I would have shot it. I would not refer to if as a dink. I will never give anyone any flack for shooting a legal animal. I think that trophy hunting is over rated and any legal animal is one to be proud of. I shot two does and a button buck last Sunday during the modern gun hunt and I am proud of all three of them. I would have been happy to shoot any legal deer. I do not wish to start an arguement. I am merely stating that I am bothered when people refer to the animals that they have harvested in a manner that demeans them almost as if they are ashamed to have killed them. I feel the same way when people refer to squirrels as tree rats. Rats disgust me. Squirrels do not.

    I apologise for the rant. I am done with it now.
