    Got my first deer on Saturday! Big 127 lb dressed doe at 15 yds double lunged! Only went 35 yds and toppled over! Such an amazing feeling! Had 2 bucks come by earlier one was massive but didn't present a shot and the other was a very solid 8pt but I got mixed up looking through my peep at where he was and thought I had a second shooting lane coming up but he was past where I thought he was, stopped him with a grunt twice but it wasn't a clear shot so feeling pretty down and hoping one of them would come back by I sat it out waiting and sure enough 3 nice does came down out of the woods, I took her in the same spot I Hesitated on the buck earlier so I got my redemption! I know with the bucks cruising it was not optimal time to take a doe but having never gotten a deer I was sticking to the mantra of if it's brown its down! I can't get back out until next Monday because of school, work and a family event (my cousin thought November 11th was a good time for a wedding :confused:) but I'm hoping to connect with one of those bucks I saw that day! Happy hunting good luck out there guys!

    I was lucky enough to get my first harvest on video thanks to my GoPro camera! I wasn't using a lighted nock so you can't see the shot but i was able to zoom the video to get a better look! Unfortunately i can't share the slow motion version unless i pay for the app but here are the links to the video of me bagging my doe! The first one is unedited (better quality) and the second is zoomed in so it loses a little clarity but gets a better look at her.
