Congrats on your first deer. He's a beauty and I'm sure he'll taste great. Do us all a favor and stick around long enough to get your second; don't be pointing your rifle at yourself like that. No excuse for it and it's dangerous.

Mucho congrats on your first deer. I also have to agree with Jay though, watch your barrel.

Congrats! Nothing like your first one! It's better than my first one. As time goes by, you'll find yourself getting pickier and pickier. Hope you mounted the head. Even if it's not a "trophy," the first one should be mounted. I didn't and regreted it ever since.
