What firearm (or bow) did you get your first deer with?
 
Mine was a .410 with a slug. Killed a doe sometime around 1983

Savage model 99 in 308. About 1980.

SAKO Forester in .243, with a blond stock. My oldest son (18) got his first deer with that rifle too at the tender age of 7. It's his now.

Funny thing. Got a plain-Jane 4x Leupold on that rifle and it hasn't been touched since 1986. Still dead-on.

Savage Model 340 30-30 bolt rifle with a Weaver fixed 4x scope, Weaver mounts and Winchester 150 grain bullet. Shot on my Uncle's 640 acre ranch, North end of Harper Texas on the Mason to Harper Highway. Afternoon hunt, sitting in an oak log ground blind with my shot at 45 yards broadside.....Dad to my right side. Deer was a basket rack 8 point buck, feeding in the middle of my Uncle's Boer goats. Made the shot, one high kick, stepped forward one step - dead before it's head hit the ground. Dad laughed at me when he looked over as I shook. Great memories - 1970.

Mid 60s Remington 700 in 270 wearing a Leupold 4x when I was 11. I bought the rifle myself when I was 10 with money earned from mowing yards.

You wouldn't be interested in selling that rifle would you?
