    I finally got my FIRST DEER! :! I have learned a lot from these posts and wanted to share my first deer with you guys. I left my regular hunting grounds of Caesar's Creek to go down to KY for the start of deer gun season. (my uncle has a farm down there)

    After hunting all weekend in very windy conditions, all I saw were squirrels. At about 9:00am this morning, I was ready to call it a weekend. It was cold and windy and I was getting hungry. I decided to give the wife a call from the tree stand. Honestly, the minute she says hello, I notice a nice little 5 pointer walking about 60 yards in front of me. I hang up on her after saying, "Oh my God, I gotta go," and take aim. I put a perfect shot on him, nearly through the heart and he fell right in his tracks.

    What an experience! I love hunting even when I am not getting anything, just being out there is fun....but actually getting one! Wow! I can't describe it. And the bonus is a deer in the freezer (minus what I gave my uncle.)

    P.S. I did call the wife back and tell her there was a good reason for hanging up on her! :)

  2. Congrats! I'm glad to see you got one under your belt.

    Thanks Fishstix....It feels so good to finally get one. He was no monster by any means and a young buck that I know a lot of people on here would scoff at taking, but he was my first and I am proud. (Actually just ate some filets tonight I cooked on the grill, yum!!)

    Anybody who would scoff at someone taking their first deer would be an idiot. Congrats on your buck. My first buck was a 5 point also after only getting does or a lot of nothing for many years.

    Nice first deer! Let that be a warmup for much better quality deer in Ohio!

    Hey great job dude, anyone that would scoff should be ashamed. you killed a nice buck and should be proud whether it's your first or not, a trophy is how you see it and thats all that matters.
