Nice! Details man! Gun caliber, range, etc.

As trip mentioned, looks like nice shot placement! Congrats!

CONGRATS!!!!

Theres a BUNCH of good eatin right there!! Makes my mouth water just looking at those pics!!

I used to take 2-3 a year, enough to eat on for the year. Make for nice variety mixed in with beef, pork and chicken.

No place to hunt this year so i am living vicariously thru others...

Dont let 'em get ya down...i have killed quite a few bucks and the one irrifutible truth i have learned is that antlers make a damn thin stew, are very tough and cause grief to the dental work!!

I also concur, good shot placement, doesnt look like it was a tough tracking job at all.

By the way hunter, that's nice, looks like a great clean shot too.
It's just my luck, but I also thoroughly enjoy just being out on the family's land hunting and getting a deer would just be icing on the cake for me. The funniest thing I can think of is when one time I was just sitting in a chair down near the creek and a deer comes right up behind me and starts licking my ear. It wasn't deer season either .

Congrats! That will be good eatin' fer sure!
I'm very lucky to get one a year here in NY. It's been a long time since I shot a buck and once in a while I'll get 2 deer, one with bow and one with the gun. Last year was a good one. You never know, that's why it's hunting!

Most States have both sex or either sex seasons for deer depending on herd population density and the predicted amount of winter feed that will be available.

It was intended to be a joke.

I need to take someone hunting who has a license and tag on years when I don't.....It's the only time I see game!! Unless I'm in the field without a gun or the season is closed. Then they feed in my front yard, knock on the door selling last years shed antlers and boxes of little chocolate candies!!

I haf one run right in front of me while I was in the middle of a reload, target shooting on my parents property. It wasn't deer season then either.

Ok, I shot it with my savage .308 at about fifty yards, at around 10:30 in the morning.
