A doe on opening day is good, but a doe and an 11 pointer buck is Awesome! Congrats.

Details of the hunt, please.
Treestand, groundblind?
The doe was from a treestand. My buddies at work finally talked me into a climber treestand. I got a cheap Ameristep Grizzly for $50 bucks at my local outdoor store. It's a little heavy but something to start with. I got the buck on a deer drive. The buck and a doe came running down off of the hill full speed and since I had all ready gotten a doe earlier I just put the crosshairs on the buck. I missed the first shot and the second shot was a side shot from behind. I saw the buck drop 150 yards away and the doe hopped the fence and kept going. When we got to the buck I was surprised he dropped so soon because it looked like a gut shot but when I was field dressing it one of the other guys pointed out the hole in his heart. I guess the slug when in through his stomach and hit his heart. I'm not a fan of deer drives but I guess I can't complain now.
