Got my first deer this week, 8 point, I've only been hunting for a couple of years.

Was sitting in my blind and he was within about 15 yards when I took the shot. Clean shot right through the heart. It ran about 30-50 yards and then dropped.

When I found it on the ground, I had 3 more deer walk up to me by within about 15 feet before they realized I was standing there, way closer than I would imagine they would get. Figured I could have shot another but I had my work cut out for me with this one, since I wanted to process it myself and didn't want to take another.

Made my first backstrap steak last night and it was amazing, as tender as any ribeye I've ever had.

This one is showing up again. He’s a really cool old deer.

I’ve got one similar I passed on opening day of archery while waiting on the buck I killed, and now, if I can see him again, I’m going to remove the big old crumb hustler from my protein feeder.
