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.
