    Well it was along five years coming but I finely got one. So my dad and I were out in colville for the late whitetail last weekend, it was crazy we were over run with mule deer left and right but I couldn't shoot any of them:rolleyes:. I got fed up with mule deer and left for an unexplored area, I had just topped a ridge when I hear a pine cone drop so I froze for what seemed like hours then I turned my head and cot a glimpse of tail then a head, when I found antlers I sent him a neat little package from a 270wsm topped with a berger:D(unknown load and grain). He ran then piled up thirty yards down hill witch I thought weird because I nailed the heart and both lungs:rolleyes:.


    P.S. My dad labeled him the sporke.

    Nice work! I still remember what it is like to get your first deer, the excitement and the relief! I can tell you were pretty happy by the look on your face in the pictures. Good job.

    Very nice. Pretty normal for them to put on a death lunge.

    I didn't understand why he was "spork" from the first picture. saw the second one and had to laugh.
    Great job and congrats on a very nice first whitetale.

    Look at the 2 bucks in my signature pic. Those are boiled skulls. Same effect as having them cleaned with beetles.

    Stop by yard sales, goodwill etc.. Find a large-very large pot. Get yourself a camp stove. Fairly straight forward. Main thing is don't use your mom's pots or stove.
