Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
A shot at dusk means cleaning the deer in the dark and a long drag back (in the dark). Not ideal at all.
But if you need meat, you need meat, and you wouldn't be hunting at dusk if you weren't willing to do the work in the dark. Looked at another way, do you want to wake up in the morning with, or without, your meat?
I like my meat intact when I wake up. Which may be a reason to stay away from redhead women when they're unhappy.
Don't much care for this one, two many things that are proportionally off. Is he trying to sim a buck with that big white hanky stick'n out of his pocket?
Brig, you are amazingly observant.
It's possible that the "Decision" in the title has something to do with the buck antelope on the other side of the water tank. And the white hankie was what the traditional method of drawing in antelope was. There's an amazing amount of detail in the picture.
That's the decision I saw. I've eaten antelope. I prefer venison, if properly prepared.
Thanks Barney, I suspected that was what the hankie was for, but I've never hunted antelope.
Brig, I confess the only authority I have on the subject was from an account by an old mountain man, name of Herbie Diebert (sp?), Nevada ways. He filled the ears of an impressionable young lad with tall tales of adventure, excitement, and derring do in the great outdoors. Probably the same guy where Patrick McManus got his idea of the character for Rancid Crabtree.
