    Here's a shameless boast for you - my 13yo son's first deer, w/7 points, taken 12/10/06. He's so proud of it and we're so proud of him! :clap: :bouncy:

    :grump: Unfortunately, someone had grazed the deer a few days before. He had a graze across his neck about 8-10" long, about 1" wide. When they skinned the deer, it was infected all thru the meat. So, no venison. :Bawling: The moral of the story is - don't count your venison before it's wrapped.

    He got this deer during muzzleloader season with a .50 caliber. For gun season, he uses a 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mauser that his dad built him for Christmas last year. The only smile I've seen on his face bigger than when he got this deer was when he opened that gun on Christmas Day last year. :rolleyes:
