    Son\'s First Deer

    Had a great Thanksgiving Holiday season, here's the buck my son shot at 100 yds. We put a sneak on him for an hour and got right up to him. Not long range, but a memory we'll never forget.

    I remember my daughter's deer even better thn my son's. Later I overheard her talking to a girlfriend on the phone. She said it was the most exciting thing she had ever done. (This was before serious boyfriends).

    Very nice Buck! BUT!

    You screwed up there letting him shoot that deer! A buck like that for a first deer, don't count on him for bringing home the meat. I can speak from personal experience, but it took me about 18yrs of hunting to get there. Now any buck I take has to be better than any previous buck I've taken. Last weekend I past up 4 very shootable bucks that 2-3 years ago I would have shot any one of them, but now they just weren't quite good enough. I've pretty much resigned myself to shooting scrub bucks (spikes and inferior/deformed antlers) until that one deer that makes me sh!t my pants walks out.

    Non the less, I'm jealous. I've never had a chance to go after a mulie, and I sure would have shot that one!
