#222 One That Got Away

I know I've posted photos of our big bucks before, but it's been awhile since I've seen a 4-point. Our new neighbors feed the deer on their front porch then go hunting! I think 4 years is going to be considered old age for our deer population now. There are new babies too so the cycle does continue. This guy wasn't scared off by us at all, he just mosied through.
I'm not opposed to hunting at all, just the method in which some folks hunt. If my dad weren't a hunter and fisherman, we would have gone without meat for long stretches. (Of course, that would have made me quite happy as I never EVER liked the taste of meat. Mom says since I was a baby, I wouldn't touch it.)
