I'm not talking about the deer itself- hell, I wouldn't have shot it at all if I had seen the tiny little horn.

I'm talking about the big smile on my son's face. This year was the first that he was able to go hunting with me (he's nine). He was a trooper- he stuck it out all day on Saturday with his feet sopping wet and half frozen. Then on Sunday we were walking out and ready to hang it up for the day and this deer jumped out in front of us on a suicide mission. He was hooked! He wants that tiny little horn for his room, and he can't wait to go again!

Bernie - Tell your Son welcome to the Hunt.

My old man wouldn't take us out until we were old enough to take Hunter Safety. I first went at 12, shot my first deer at 15 and this was the first year I was goose egged. I am going out Friday but we'll see what happens then.

Wow- that is awesome!!!!! Tell him congrats from me and our family. My husband was impressed with the picture. Tell him that Bob is a wildlife biologist and thinks "that particular deer will make good venison and it looks like it's a 1 1/2 year old deer from the picture. Can't really tell without seeing the teeth to age it. And the body size looks better than average." Brent didn't even see any deer at our place in Phelps on Sat. or Sunday, so he's way ahead of him.

The best news is that now he's hooked and eager to go again. And he'll have a horn to remind him of his past success. Thanks for sharing the picture!

A 200lb dressed-out deer would be HUGE. This one wasn't near that big, maybe 120-140, just guessing. You take a rope or strap along into the woods with you and drag him out. Or, in this case, you walk back to the farmhouse, borrow the landowner's skidsteer, and drive him out in the bucket.

What I'd like to know is how'd you get the deer to commit suicide in your garage???

Nice harvest...

Spikes are good eating. Maybe he can try for an extra point every year.
