Congrats on the ice breaker!

A euro mount might be worth saving for your first. You could do it yourself maybe.
Way to go! I struck out this year, and now the deer are circling the parking lot at work making fun of me!

<----<<<
It was farm field that’s part of some property a guy I met owns. I was sitting watching a large group of deer moving 300yds away from me. I have a 450 BM, so kinda outside my range; then a group of 5 doe came in to my left at 170yds. I watched them circle, they came back in my shot window and I dropped her in her tracks! Blood was a ritual thing that is for your first kill, or so I’m told lol!
Congrats! Where's the back story though... details of the hunt, private or public land, story behind the bloody face, etc. Lol
