I posted a few pictures in the Scouting/Trail Camera thread. Opening day was yesterday, August 10th. I scouted the day before and found a big 2x3. I put a stalk on him opening day, but got to 20 yards, and could not get a shot.

Found him and two other bucks this afternoon, and put a stalk on them.

53 yards, in a strong cross wind with updrafts, much stronger than I anticipated. I put the pin on his ham, and hit him in the spine, dropping him. One more shot into the lungs finished him off. Not a perfect shot, and my first archery deer, on my first archery deer tag.

Pretty stoked.

A good friend acted as Taxi driver, and my 13 year old daughter was along as well.

Now to prepare for the three tags she has. 112091112092112093112094112095

Nothing like seeing an animal fall from your own arrow. Congrats and good luck the rest of the season.
