First Deer Down

Recommended Posts

Funny thing is, I was going to skip hunting tonight. I came off a bad experience on a guided hunt up-state and that plus how warm it is PLUS I have a new toy to pick up made me seriously consider not going. Boy am I glad I didn't listen to me.

 

Got to the stand around 1:30. I had a time limit, I was going to bail at 6:15 so I would have enough light to walk out in. Around 6 I heard something behind me. It was nothing. But when I turned around there he was. Snuck up on me. I definitely had buck fever as I rushed the shot a bit but I must have nicked his femoral equivalent because when I found him 35 minutes later it was all done. Good, bright red trail.

 

Third year hunting. First deer down. Certainly worth the wait.

Congrats! Nice first deer. Haha that is so true to not listen to yourself, I've done that a few times and it paid off big.
