Volume 90 Number 6
November/December, 2012

On The Cover
      Registered Alpine buck Gravel-Ends Watonka was a Christmas gift five years ago for owner Linda Miller of Hillsboro, Kansas. He had a cute little pink nose and was soft and sweet. Now he is a big, ugly, and very stinky, hardworking buck, but Miller loves him all the same. He is also part of this issue’s buck judging class on page 44.
