You make the call. Which subject in the accompanying photograph is a lowdown dirty dog?

Is it the fortunate hunter who scored on this fine, tall-tined (apparently Texas) buck that few of us could pass on? Dirtydogs_2

Or what about the precocious pooch, a little guy with no shortage of confidence and ambition?

The photo came to us by way of Jeff Lampe, the fine hunting and fishing scribe for the Peoria (Ill.) Journal-Star and host of The Scattergun Blog.

Unfortunately, like many images circulating the Web these days, no further identification or details were included with this photo. Despite that, we’re certain there’s a great story to go along with it–even if it isn’t true!

Anyone care to submit one?
