    i shot my first deer of my life today at 5:30 from about 5 yds away up in my tree stand and tracked her for about 1 mile and left her alone intil the morning and then we are going to get her in the morning but i almost hit the spine but i did hit the lungs a little bit so she aint to far but i had to come home to do some homework and i have to say this was one of the best days of my life just toget out there and see something and then getting a shot at one made it just that much better

    Be careful, it's addictive. LOL Some of us spend anywhere from 4 days to 3 months hunting deer, and the rest of the year preparing for the next 4 days to 3 months. LOL Good to see you at least got a shot off. Let us know if you find it.

    Congrats on your first deer. They get easier from there....okay maybe not. Like everyone else said, you get addicted after the first.
