My son bagged his first whitetail today.

One shot, DRT. 243 Winchester 100gr handloads.



A little face paint to go with the occasion.



I am not proud at all

Make sure you get that blood off the rifle.

Congrats!

Nice deer! How do you guys in warmer climates get them cooled down quickly?

Those are awesome pics.

I don't blame you for being proud.

I remember my first deer. On the opening day of buck season 1979, my dad took me out and set me up with his 30-30. Just as morning broke a nice 8 point stepped into view. Dad was wispering, shoot it, shoot it now. But I kept quiet, waiting on that perfect double lung heart shot. Well, he got mad and yelled at me, spooking the deer. He grabbed the rifle and stormed back to the house, leaving me trail behind.

That night, he went out the the lodge with some of his buddies, when he suffered a major heart attact and died. AFter the funeral and everything was over on Thursday, I asked Mom if I could have dads 30-30, she said, it's yours. That Saturday I took my/his 30-30 and went to the same spot and killed the 8 point buck with a double lung heart shot. I cried while telling my dad, see, that's what I was waiting for.

Charish those moments you have with your Dad and Dads with your children. Congrats on your fist deer. Awsome.

No problem--in the fridge within about three hours (probably less).


Damn! I'm usually three hours away from home when I shoot em.

I was just thinking that as well .

Apparently that is only a hunting tradition in Hollywood. I hunted with my grandfather that hunted with his grand dad. Traditions run deep. Witness the war paint, and I have seen a few brand new shirts with the tails cut off. Bloody hands don't get washed until you get home and such.

Never heard of the blood drinking/ heart eating until red dawn. Maybe I lived under a rock or something...

Congratulations on a nice harvest to your son.

I'm four hours from "home" but only about a hundred yards from the cabin--with electricity and water. I have to sleep on a blow up bed so we are roughing it.


You SUCK!



RM,

I usually only cut the tails off a shirt when I'm hunting if I forget my shit tickets

I know it's hard to imagine but some folks have never been in a deer camp, and have no way of being familiar with the traditions.


Thats a new one on me, but I like it!

Count me as one of the clueless ones. This is the first I've heard of it and (surprise, surprise) the computer geek has never been in a deer camp.

Not yet. We were checking it out for precisely that purpose. I have seen wood ducks in there in the past. Beautiful birds. I Wonder how they taste ... ?
