Greetings From Vermont.. Welcome to the Club... First I have to say an 80 lb Doe for your first Deer is a very Fine deer indeed, Every Ethical hunter will tell you the same thing there's "no shame in game"

Shopping at Wal-Mart? I buy tons of things at Wal-Mart.
I have good luck with most everything I buy from them. Grunts, Bleats, rattling bag, ammunition, It's all brand name stuff,, another note... Wal-Mart doesnt manufacture the stuff they just market it.
Like buckfever says as an example A Primos call is a Primos call.
AND Wal Mart is not my Exclusive outlet for hunting supplies Believe me I share between suppliers... With your buying needs, your beginning purchases and supplies can get very expensive shop wisely for what you "NEED", don't be afraid to look for bargains,, any money you save now will be used later to buy your "WANTS" Needs are the things you have to have, the WANTS are those things on your wish list...
Good Luck to you and Happy Safe Hunting

Welcome and Congrats,

Till recently I too did most of my shopping at Walmart. I always thought the other places would be way too expensive. Well, I was wrong Basspro and Gander Mtn. have a lot the same items at comparable prices. The difference is they have a much larger selection. So just get what you need and don't worry about where it came from, maybe check Walmart and if they don't have exactly what you want the try one of the others.

No argument with that. For the first time ever I broke the piggy bank and bought a cold weather parka and pants from cabelas and I don't know why I haven't done that a long time ago. But I do buy alot of hunting items from Wal-Mart.

lol i try not to buy any hunting sweaters or jackets from wal-mart cus the zippers always screw up on them, but maybe thats just me. i do buy a lot of gear at walmart because they usualy have what i need and the nearest bass pro or cabelas is over and hour away. i reload most of my rifle ammo, but i buy my shotgun shells from there, along with countless outher items that i probobly dont need.

leave the cop shades home you dont have to have the sun at your back but it does help i know some mornings i love the feeling of the sun warming me up.deer tend to bed where the sun will hit them first thing so keep this in mind.congrats on your deer like everyone else has said if ya did it by the book who cares what the next guy things.to many people get caught up in the mines bigger/better than yours thing.

I'll add my "Welcome" to the group. Regarding sunglasses, or anything bright or shiny -- stay away from it. You'd be surprised at what animals can see and pick up on. When I hunted caribou in northern Canada, the Inuit guides didn't even like to see hunters wearing red. "No wear red; caribou see red," they kept saying. These guys just might be the best hunters in the world, so maybe they're right. Unfortunately, where most of us hunt, things aren't so isolated that we can afford to NOT wear red or hunter orange. Anyway, it's required, but shiny stuff isn't!
As a new hunter, you might want to read Beyond Fair Chase by JimPosewitz. It's all about hunter ethics - short, very readable and enjoyable, and only about five bucks in paperback. (The other guys on this site are probably getting tired of hearing me recommend this book, but it's worth it.)
