Thanks, and didn't have a pic of the knife in there but here's the pics of the knee. 6 stitches and I'm on crutches to keep them from busting.

Great job Robert, and man that's a heck of a stab, was that with one of those havalon scalpel knives? I hear they're more dangerous because they are sharper but don't have a good grip.

It wasn't my havalon it was my old trusty knife. And I was breaking down my deer, using it to chop through the ribs like a cleaver at her spine, and it blew through the last couple and glanced off the spine into my leg. Then I got to pack her out and thankfully Tod met me and helped take care of the meat while I went to the ER

I scouted the Sam this summer, then promptly had a baby this fall and haven't hunted at all so you guys posting all this success are giving me major FOMO.

The friend I went to SHNF with shot this buck on Tuesday morning. He looked at him for a long time before finally deciding to shoot. Just barely made the 13 inches. I should have shot a pig Tuesday night but with a few small fork bucks already in the clearing I hunted I chose to hold out for a doe. Hindsight being 20/20 I should have shot that pig. Overall a nice first trip. Might try to make a day trip to try and fill this doe tag before season ends.

At first glance I would have thought no way that buck is close but the height makes it look bigger than it is. Congrats to your friend and glad he was legit.

I honestly don't know how good of a look he got of him from the front. He is definitely cutting it close. Looking from the side I can see thinking he has to be wide enough. He felt good enough about it to take the shot and I was glad the buck measured out.

Took my old man out yesterday afternoon in hopes of getting him on a legal buck. No deer sightings but we did have a group of pigs come out at about 40 yards. Unfortunately my dad was unable to take the shot due to his position in the blind but I was more than happy to pick up the rifle and put one down. Name:  IMG_3319.jpg

So I got up for work this morning. Making coffee and rubbing my eyes. I look up and I think. Is that what I think it is? So I throw my Binos up. And yep. Itís a buck. So run and grab my 7mm. Donít have time to play games. Mama jumps up because she already knows why I am moving so fast. And gets to the window just in time to say. Is that it. BOOM!! That deer ran so fast I thought I missed it. But I went out and found it on the property line and drug it back. In the drag I hit my toe on a stump. Broke the little fellow. But it was still worth it. Well this morning it was. Now I am crying in the couch.
