Congrats on the deer! But I'm with Jahan. I hope it wasn't literally the first time you've ever shot that gun, but the first time shooting it on a hunt. I think that's what you meant, right?

Ok well obviously you can see some of the guys think less of your shot than you do. People will come out of the woodwork to tell you it was an irresponsible thing to do, that you should have practiced for months on end before you ever took the gun to the field..... what do I think? I'd agree with them BUT life is full of mistakes that we can only learn from. Unfortunately there isn't a rewind button so that we can make our actions perfect and up to everyone else's standards. I do think congratulations are in order for your first deer but the guys are right... next time, go shoot a few times before you go out to hunt. You know, not because you CAN'T shoot (you've shown that you can)....but just to make sure you're familiar with your firearm and iron out any inconsistency with your shot before you get to the woods to hunt. Again, great job on your deer... I'm with everyone else and would like to see pictures. Practice does make perfect and you may have been lucky once but next year, don't depend on luck.... just shoot a bunch with that weapon so you KNOW you can make that shot again when you get the chance. Just friendly advice.... hopefully the others take it easy on you.

Good post Riley. I agree.

Congratulations and you're still full of it until you post pics.

I shot a 44" wide 295" buck last night on the extended, but my camera broke and I forgot how to post pictures. Bummer, but I swear it happened.

EXCELLENT response RiverRat. Listen to him. He has good advise - and presents it VERY well.

Now - speaking as a mod - lets remember we have a fellow hunter very excited about his first deer. Lets leave it there for now.

Now, lets see some pictures of that beast with your ear-to-ear grin. The first deer is the best! Congrats!

I agree Gary. It pains me to see a 15 year old (I'm not assuming that's the age of the alleged in this conversation) hounded and brow beaten by a bunch of adults. Let's make sure we are clear on who we are addressing before we drop the hammer. That obviously hasn't happened in this thread YET, so let's keep it that way.

Congrats on the deer. I would just like to know what you would have done if you wounded it, maybe shot a leg, or made a gut shot?? Lucky for the deer you didnt but what if??
