Hey Neckisred! I kind of chuckled at the "old fart" comment. cant get angry when its true!

Fact is as you stated, doe tags are there, some guys, like you I guess, like horns. I dont have a problem with that, or the seniors being equal oppurtunity hunters either. Sounds like a good idea

Just for the FYI portion, this old man isnt bound by those pesky antler restrictions because he has a shoot from vehicle,(Pa calls it use a vehicle as a blind), but it doesnt mean I use it, or plan to use it for "scrub bucks" either. just saying.

Thought you might find it interesting that someone just might be glad for someone else...YES, have at it newbies on that Saturday opener.
