Opening day

One of my friends came over saturday for opening day and we shot 4 deer between us. We were out for all does, but ended up with two does and two bucks mistaken for does... Here's a pic of three. We had just gotten the fourth right before dark and was still in the pickup.

thats why they make binoculars.so ya dont shoot bucks by mistake

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Yeah, I know...My buddy shoots open sights and doesn't have binos. One of them had actual spikes ~6" long, and the other was probably a 2.5 y/o deer that had both main beams snapped off about an inch above the base. I was with him when he shot the busted rack, and I couldn't see them with my nikons. He should have taken more time to identify the spike, but things happen. He was ticked he had to use his buck tag on a spike...maybe that will teach him.
