Default Opening Day Success, first wall hanger, with pics !

My dad and I hunted on my grandpa's 100 acre farm on the morning of October 1. We are located in North East Indiana, Wells County to be exact. At about 8:15 two bucks came in, they put on quite a show staying within 20 yards of me for at least ten minutes. After some debate on whether to draw back on one or not I ended up shooting the bigger of the two bucks, and couldnt be happier. He is my 20th deer and biggest buck to date, in ten years of deer hunting. I shot him at twenty yards and the Rage Extreme teamed with my Mathews Z7 Magnum absolutely ate him up. He ran 40 yards and was DONE. I am thrilled I got to harvest this nice buck with my dad 150 yards down the fence row and got to enjoy the whole day with him, it was a day we won't forget! Thanks for reading guys

Congrats! I went out as well on opening morning, however just a doe came in at about 100 yards...a little to far for a bow.
