I believe this thread has been on here before, but lots of new members have joined the W&W ranks as of recently. Post up a pic of your very first deer you have taken, or your child's first deer and how taken in this thread. This is mine. A 4 pointer that may as well have been a 14 pointer, it got me so shook up. Was using an XI Legend Magnum compound bow with Predator camo on it. I had a woodland camo one piece suit on and was using Easton XX75 aluminum arrows with Thunderhead 100's. Remember like it was yesterday. No bait, no cameras (don't even think they were out then) just set up in a climber (TSS?) on a good run that lead from heavy bedding to a white oak stand... The buck came out an hour before dark and an unseen branch deflected my arrow and it hit him in the in front of his rear end. Was SHOCKED when the deer ran to 30 yards and was done.... I learned that the femoral artery was deadly that day to my surprise! Went home to get my Dad and brother, and even wanted to keep the gut pile in the pic for whatever reason! My son's first doe is below taken when he was 10 years old with the 220, as well as his first buck taken a couple years later with the Accura .50 cal. Also my daughter's first deer, a spike taken when she was 12 with the 870 20 gauge..
