Hoadie? Is that you? We hadn't heard from you and your sunny disposition for a while! I was beginning to think you had gone into hibernation! It was a nice 4 pointer. Small rack, we call basket bucks. As far as pictures, my flip top cell phone camera is broke, and even if I did have pic's, the chance of me figuring out how to post them are slim to none. We have  have one more tag to fill so we:re going out today. I'll be using my cammo'd, bobbed "Rescue Gun" (sorry for the term "gun", Hoadie, but it just fits the rifle!) shooting 180 gr ProHunters.

Good job Honky!
 
Re gun and rifle;
Calling a rifle a gun, doesn't bother me half as much as calling a Smoothbore a rifle!!

I do not see or shoot bucks many in North Carolina.

No matter how long you cook horns, you still can not eat them.

Very true, but they do make good handles for dragging it out of the bush!

Very nice indeed! Are those what they call blacktail deer? Also, that doesn't look like an Enfield you're cradling!

I'm pretty happy as we've had only a bucks only season for several years and I hadn't bagged an animal for quite a while. I forgot to mention, I first saw this buck, another buck and four does about 400 yds away in the field. My buck and a bigger buck started scrapping! It's only the second time I've seen this! Anyway, it didn't last long and my buck lost. He started heading  towards me. I waited till he was in my wheelhouse. Bad day for this guy...
