Boy's first deer

Well little fly made a great shot on his first ever deer this morning. He was using a mossburg 270. It was a 6 point buck, 140 ish lbs. made a quatering shot. Deer made one hop then a few slow steps for about fifteen yards and fell over. Pic to come in a short when I can get home and down size n upload.

thanks HM, he was ready to go. about ten mins before that deer came in he asked if we could go home cas he thought we was just going to have a bust day. because about an hour before that someone shot behind us. (id say about 400 yards or so back) and we had the wind in our favor (in our face) but the deer for the shot came in running but winded us as soon as the broke the hill, and already skidish from just being shot at one blew and they went another way. he thought it was all over and a waste of time from then on till the buck come in!! boy how fast his mood changed, i think hes called everyone that he knows and starting the list over again just in case they didnt get the full story the first time

now that he got his, time for me to try to knock one out, i took the scent glands off that deer. i like to use them. they are better than any store bought atractaint by far !! but only good for about three or four days if it stays cool.

why cant i upload a pic ? im trying to up load a Jpeg and ive got it down well under the size and it keeps telling me its not a valid format. its a jpeg pic and under size what more can i do ???

Great job to the both of the flys. I don't know much about the pic sizing/imaging stuff.

I use photo bucket and have to crop the size of the picture, it's the only way I can do it.

Well I've put up many pics before on here but now it's just not letting me. Keeps saying my file is invalid, I don't know why .. It's jpeg, it's under the max size limit so I'm at a loss.

First of all, CONGRATS to both you and your son on that great hunt! I know he's still very excited!!

Now, to address the upload of pics, the exact same thing has happened to me recently. I've uploaded over 100 pics here before, without issue. Since last Sunday, I can upload none, including those I've re-sized. I have had zero issues here, prior. And, I have no issues anywhere else, but here. Something screwy here....
