This picture was sent in as an example of a buck that might need to be cut from the herd.  (The camera was tilted a bit, but still a good picture of this buck.)  Study the deer in your area, learn more about aging on the hoof, and please make your selections carefully when Archery Whitetail season opens tomorrow.

Also remember safety is priority number one when using either a bow or rifle for hunting.   ORWMA requests everyone (bow & rifle hunters) to hunt from elevated stands only.  Think ahead about the trajectory of your shot.   Think ahead about the safety of your family, friends and neighbors.

Live life outdoors!
