    Came across an old polaroid the other day of checking in a deer at a local gas station. Used to really enjoy seeing those deer on the back of pickup trucks and shooting the bull with the local guys that were successful. Always strolled by to look at all the polaroids too from everything checked in.

    I don't miss them one bit but, I also don't hunt for the comradery. However, I have several friends that really miss them.

    I miss those days not as much the check stations. Just the old timers and their woodsmanship.
    Also miss the Ky law that said if there was a buck in the back of someones truck you could hold up traffic on all Ky roadways ,except the interstate to look at him:)

    I do miss them. Back in the old days there were no deer on our farm so we had to load them up anyway, but now that we hunt exclusively on our farm it would be a pain. So I’m torn now, but they were fun back in the day.

    I didn't live in Kentucky then, but that seems like a hassle to me. I'm not really much of a people person though.
