    dec 1 my 16 birthday and opening day of first season shotgun.
    it was sleeting and snowing and cold and windy. the first push 4 small deer came up to me. 2 buttin bucks and i think 2 does i droped the 2 biggest and the others ran off. the biggest of the 2 that ran away stop about 50 yd away and looked at me. i razed my gun and droped her.i didnt have anymore shots the rest of the day or the nextday till about 4:30. i was walking up a fince line and there was a little piece of timber about 10 yds wide and 20 long i got about 30 yds away from it win he jumped up. i jumped a little creek that was 3 feet away. i steped into the corn and razed my gun as he ran across the hill and shot. i hit him in the heart and the lungs he ran ten yards and droped i was so exsited win he droped i ran up to him and i had to sit down, i will have pic by this weekend

    Way too go!!! Nice deer! I wish I could hunt in the BIG buck belt of Iowa!!!! I have to let these Tennessee deer get to be old men, before I have a trophy!! Those Iowa deer can get 140+ at 3 1/2....all that corn!:crazy:
