It's just you. I get more excitement out of putting myself on a deer .

I can tell you this.....it's:

1. A lot of pressure.....really.
2. An absolute BLAST to see/be there when a friend kills a deer you put him on.


My feelings on this have chnged a lot over the last two years. At first....I looked at this ALL wrong. I mean ALLLllll wrong. I still remember a thread where BigJ kinda set me straight....and he was right.

Now....hosting my friends here (and I've had 4 HNI'ers hunting here in the last 2 years.....with 3 of them scoring!) is the highlight(s) of my season. I'll add people to the list next year (if not this year).

I set my one of my older friends up by scouting with him and convincing him to sit by the swamp,
instead of a small clear cut.
I moved his stand for him and he went in the next day @ 2:00 and by 3:45 he called to ask me to help him drag.
169lb. 9 pt

It was way more fun "thinking" I actually new what I was doing and then directly proving it too someone else

And NO he's wasn't smoking wacky tabacky!

I made him a nice frame with a 5X7 picture for him and "our" success for x-mas.

My brother never shot a big buck till this year. I put him in one of my favorite stands and he grunted him into 20 yds and arrowed him.. I was really really excited for him. Down side it was the buck I had been chasing for quite some time, but I was still excited for him..

Then he went with my uncle on his first shotgun hunt on public ground none the less.. They once again grunted in about a 110" buck and my brother was in stand with him when he shot the buck. From what I hear they were both more excited then what they normally are when alone.. Kind of Cool!!

No doubt about it for me. It is as much fun putting someone else on a deer than shooting them myself. My son shot his second deer ever this year - first one was last year. He is twelve. He got the shakes after the shot. You all know what I am talking about. I loved watching him feel the "rush" that is deer hunting!

Better yet is when multiple people score on the same hunt, but that doesn't happen very often.

It's an awesome feeling. I have been trying to put my buddy on a big typical 10 I have on camera all season. So far no luck, but he has gotten a younger buck.

It's great seeing your freinds happy.

This is a picture of my son's girl friend. I put her in a blind for the shotgun weekend and she stuck it out like a trooper through some severely cold temperatures. On Sunday Dec. 7th, in the last 15 min. of legal shooting light, she nails this nice 10 pt. Her first deer ever! I know it's not a bow kill but nothing thrilled me more than seeing her shoot her first deer, let alone a nice buck like this. She capped off a great year that started with killing her first tom in the spring. By the way, this is also her first year of "hunting". I'd say we introduced a new hunter to our sportthat will be hooked for life!
