Great day in the woods!! (Aren't they all?) Today was supposed to be my fiancee's first shot at a deer...The Good Lord decided otherwise though and brought the deer on my side of the stand...so, me and TNNewgirl were sitting in the stand, and at about 8:10 2 does come flying past us on my stand..."Meah...MEAH!!!", they were NOT stopping...lol..I figured something was chasing them...sure enough, about 75 yards behind them with nose to the ground..."MEAH!!" He stopped at about 30 yards...quick shot to the shoulder, he ran about 50 yards and I heard him pile up. So, for the first time in 20 years, I got this little guy to get the buck monkey off my back...more meat for the freezer!!

TNNewgirl

7 point with 2 small stickers on back of one antler.


Found nice mushroomed bullet just inside skin on opposite side. First non pass-through I've ever had, but it hit shoulder and a rib bone. Remington Core-lokt in .308.

And after skinning and quartering...

Great day, sorry for all pics and long read, but I'm really happy today!!

One question though... why 20 years?

Up until the 2010 season...I haven't hunted since my early 20's. Deer were very scarce in FL and I wasn't a very good hunter...lol...only got a little 3 point 20 years ago, and that was my first and only deer. 2010, 1 doe...2011, 1 doe...found TNDeer in Sept 2012, learned a lot, put in a lot of work, and now we got 2 does and 1 buck in the first 11 days of rifle season!! It really paid off. We just finished processing this evening and the freezer is nearly full with 3 deer! Now, I'm gonna try and let my fiancee get the next one!!

I sure hope so...this day was about her, and to date all the deer had come through on her side...I thought she'd surely be able to shoot at something...lol...unfortunately, this guy was chasin' hard...and they just came through on my side real fast. Fortunately, he stopped...lol, well, fortunately for me anyways!
