Default my uncle, one lucky SOB

I've got the luckiest uncle in the world. Sunday morning, he's sitting in his ground blind and he see's a a doe come screaming in by his blind. Well in tow are 2 huge bucks the bigger of which stops broadside to his blind 60 yards away. After a perfect neck shot, which drops the big boy in an instant, the other buck starts sniffing at downed giant and my uncle has to shoo him away. The buck is a giant perfectly symetric 10 point that will score 160+ with huge 8 " browtimes. My uncle had the same thing happen to him 3 years ago (at the same stand) when a 150+ 10 point walked right up to him while he was sleeping. He woke up and and blasted that guy at 40 yards. Can you believe that [&:][&:][&:]

Asfor my weekend, all I saw was little bucks and does so I ended uptaking a button buck and a doe. I won't shoot a little buck (evenif he is legal)when we have such an abundance of does up in NE MO.

You won't take a small buck but you'll take a button buck?

guys, the button prolly looked like a doe. You can't always tell. I've shot them on accident before as well.

I'd like to see you determine a button buck from a doe at 70 yards in the woods. That's why the MDC tags are for any deer and antlerless deer, not any deer and does. If I thought it was button buck then I would have let it go. The "antlers" didn't even break the skin yet....

father in law shot a big doe the other day -

well, we let it hang for two days.

Turned out to be a little spike, haha the skin tightened up to reveal about 2 1-2cm spikes, ****ty.
