So here in washington its 1 buck per year, so use your tag wisely. I happen to have the whitetail raffle tag, so im one of only a few people in the state that gets 2 this year. I was really hoping to get 2 wallhangers, but circumstances forced my hand. A couple days ago i shot the smallest buck ive ever killed, not counting my first. A young (2.5yr) 3x4 came hobbling up my driveway just as i was getting ready to go visit somebody next county over. His front right lower leg was flopping around like a limp noodle. This buck was in bad shape. I decided since i have the raffle tag this year, i would put my general tag on this little dink to put him out of his misery. I just felt bad for him, and didnt want him to experience a terrifying death from a coyote or wolf ripping his guts out while he was still alive. This is a pic of his knee where some incompetent knucklehead shot him, i think on the dnr land across the road from my house. Moral of the story, dont shoot unless you know you xan make your shot count. If i wouldve left the house 5 min earlier, this young buck wouldve undoubtedly had a very painful, horrifying ending.
