First off great site, I just started hunting this year I came from a family with not one hunter and very little firearms. So I talked to a buddy of mine at work and he said that he would teach me about guns and hunting. I bought my first 12 gauge (mossburg 500) in spring and started target shooting all spring nd summer. When squirrel season came in we went out I got 4 my first day now I dont know how many of them I have shot up till now. So Monday the first day of Gun Season and we go out in the woods my buddy hit a 6 point within an hour of being in the woods. I helped him load it on the atv and he left to get it checked. So I stayed and was feeling a bit down then about 70 yards out I see just a rack nothing else I sat completely still for 3 or 4 minutes and it stood up. I couldnt believe it a 10 point so sited in the buck and fired. I got my first deer and it was a huge buck. As soon as I got out of the tree my buddy comes walking down the path we walked over to the deer I couldnt beleve it I think I ruined hunting in the area with the yelling I did but hey I couldnt help it. I still cant beleve it. Oh I went out tuesday didnt get anything and went out today and got a medium size doe. So I am going out tomorrow to see if in my first year hunting can get my limit during gun season. Oh and just so I dont get where are the pics they are below. The rack on the left has 6 pts. and the rack on the right has 4pts. One small one on the left but hey it was over an inch so it counted. By the way i gutted and butchered it all on my own not bad for a first timer (LOL) I also decided to have it mounted.
