    Been hunting off and on since I was a kid with my uncle but never really seriously deer hunted until last year. I've always hunted off of the ground in blinds but this time I decided just to use sit on the ground and use a tree to lean against. This 6 pointer walked out at about 25 yards he has 4 points on one side and 2 on the other he's not a monster but I proud of em, I was actually just trying to take a doe. I didn't have time to stand up or get to a knee to make a shot so I had to take the shot sitting on my butt:sad2:. didn't think to practice this position but all I got the job done. My first deer and meat in the freezer. My uncle forgot to mention the hard part isn't killin the deer, it's draggin it back to the car by yourself!:eek:oooh:

    Congrats, that dragging is the worse thing. Carts help alot, even a wheelbarrow. Plastic sleds/tabogans will help too. Most of the time I use a drag rope and tie it to the head and front feet. If you tie it off to a cut sapling 2"-4" thick and 4'-6' long it helps. Ive carried a gambrel and hoist into the timber too and just hoisted the deer into the trees till the next day when we could get a 4 wheeler into it. Ive got a gambrel and hoist in my pack now. You can skip the gambrel to save weight and just cut a limb to slide thru the back leg tendons if you want.
