So I finally got my first buck on my last night out for rifle! I kept falling asleep in the blind, couldn't keep my eyes open for the life of me. Happened to open my eyes, and seen this guy standing out in front of me about 60 yards. I sat up, dropped the walkie talkie on the floor, he looked up right at me, and I thought for sure he was gonna take off! I froze, then he lowered his head. I opened the window with one hand, while grabbing my rifle with the other. Pulled off the shot, seen him jump and run, and found him laying about 40 yards away! :D

Outstanding. Nothing like the feeling when you connect on that first one.

Wish I knew the feelin of connecting on the first one. I shot a super small doe in a field @250 yards. She dropped in the group before I even knew I got her. Thought I missed and then after the hunt I walked to where they were and there she was. I hit her in the neck and the exit wound took her hole face off. Threw her over my shoulder (ungutted) and walked to the truck and gutted her there. I was not pleased with myself at all. Later thast day I got a big 7. That felt like my first deer. I was stoked.

Congrats on your first. You'll have a hard time shooting one more memorable than your first.
Thanks! I don't think it will get any more memorable then this one. I could maybe see if my first was a little spike or something, but I think I got lucky on this one..........for being my first!

Oh, just a FYI, the rack is much bigger in person! These pics for some reason make it look smaller than what it is.

Great job man! They always look smaller in the pics! What part of the state were you hunting? Great work and good luck the rest of the way!
