    My very first deer this morning..went out to get set up in our blind early before shooting light...my daughters 5 and 9 asleep on a camp mat beside me. Saw the deer peep out of the treeline about 50 yards away..it went out to grab a bite..then back in..second time out I nailed him perfectly...he reared up and ran about 100 yards. Woo Hooo

    Hmmm..testing a pic link

    As soon as Dh gets around to home ( he's still out trying for his own deer :) )I can see about him getting a pic up for me.

    Welcome to the First Deer Club !!
    I am also a member as of last week.
    Ain't it a thrill ????

    Congratulations, now the real work begins....hanging, skinning, cutting it up and figuring out where to stash it all.

    enjoy your success, that's quite an accomplishment.

    Congrats on your first deer!! :)

    Our deer season doesn't start until this coming Saturday, and I'm hoping to get my first deer then! I've gone for 2 seasons now, didn't have much of a chance the first season (deer was running), blew my shot the 2nd season due to getting overexcited (I've been kidded a lot about "doe fever" for the last year), and this year I'm hoping to have learned from my mistakes! *LOL* Sure looking forward to getting out there, I think I'm driving the DH nuts talking about it :)

    Congrats to all of you! I killed my first deer 48yrs ago & I can still remember that feeling! I still get it every time I kill one. I'm a little pleasantly surprised at the number of women that seem to be hunting now.I think that it's a Very Good Thing! When I was a young man there was a ritual for first-time deer killers that involved drinking the blood of the just-killed deer.I doubt if that's still a feature of deer hunting now. I didn't make my kids do it. Good Hunting & be Safe!

    Congrats!

    I had to be christened with my first one--blood all over my face. Looked like an indian going to battle!

    I can't believe your daughters were sleeping in the blind with you! Wow. That's super neat.

    Good Job! The family that hunts together tracks todether. Were your kids scared by the blast or did they know it was coming?

    That is quite a picture in my mind.

    Thanks.

    *Chuckles*...I still joke with DH about my youngest...(5 years old) who when I told her to stay in the blind while I went to track the deer, said very slowly " What did you say ?? I can't hear you..."I honestly expected more jumping up frightened girls but they were not frightened at all.
