He's just a little dude, but it was awesome!
Nothing little about that. He’s WAY bigger than my first buck. Mine had 3” spikes.
Congrats on your first. There’s no better one than that one.
Thanks Dewey. My first buck (and only previous buck) was last year, and it was a gross 147 and change (the one in my profile pic), but it was on extremely low pressure private land, from a pre set tower stand on a buddy's property, during the rut, and with a firearm. I have it shoulder mounted and hanging in my living room. It looks great on the wall without question, and I am proud of it. Last nights buck is substantially smaller and much younger, however I decided where to go based on the conditions and the pressure around me, it was out of my saddle in a spot I decided to set up in, and it was a 30 yard shot with my bow. The first may be nicer, but this one... this one feels a little different.
Any deer with the bow is a great accomplishment but the first buck with the bow is special. Great job on the gun buck. That’s a heckuva buck anywhere.
