Default Man I'm a wreck!!

I'm taking the kids on their first gun hunt for deer this weekend and the anticipation is worse than opening weekend of bow season.
With the help of our lease boss Jeff, AntlerCollector who has corn up his stand twice and put out a cam to make sure there are deer coming in , it looks like we have a pretty good shot at getting a deer on the ground.
I can't thank you enough Brother.
Come on 5:30 so I can get this show on the road.
Thanks again Jeff and good luck to yall this weekend too.
I forgot to mention I was only wanting to shoot a doe but Jeff said he has a couple of bucks that show up now and again and has given us the green light on them as well!!

Have fun! Don’t forget to hit the record button, I was so nervous on my sons first hunt, I thought I was recording it but never pushed the record button. He shot a nice doe, and dad messed up the only job he had. We still laugh about it today.

My 4 yr old killed his first deer a couple weeks ago, man talk about exciting. I too forgot to hit record, got caught up in the moment. That spike he shot was better than any deer I have on the wall. Good on him for giving you the green light in his stand as well. Good luck this wknd!

Default Man I'm a wreck!!

I have NEVER in my life been so nervous behind the rifle, as I was setting beside it when Snoop killed his first one back in november. Man, I was glad to see that deer fall!

I screwed up the video with my phone, but this was worth it......

good luck! my son shot his first deer a few weeks ago and afterwards he said "dad, my heart was beating so fast i bet you could see it through my shirt!" little does he know i was about to throw up myself

i didnt get video because i was too worried about having to watch the shot and the deer run but she fell where she stood. i was able to video his first hog about 30mins later, he dropped that sucker too. we are going out today with the crossbow looking for an old buck.

hope it all works out for you guys
