    My son got his first deer last night. A doe at 40 yards with a crossbow. I need suggestions on how I can help him remember this. I have the arrow and a great picture of him with his deer. I was thinking about making something for him.

    Thats awesome. My Gpa framed a 4 picture frame with 3 pics of me and him and my first deer and in the 4th spot he had a little plaque that said my name/date/90# doe/ pope co. IL. I need to dig that thing out and dust it off. You could do something like that

    Some people don't like them but a rack made from the legs.

    Congrats to both of you!! I'd say have the arrow and picture framed, maybe save a lower leg and see if a taxidermist can make a thermometer leg mount

    I have the tail from my first doe. we just sprinkled borax on it and let it dry. You could do a shadow box with something similar (though it'd be hard for the bolt to fit in).

    Congrats to your son, that's awesome! I still have the arrow from my first deer, almost 13 years ago.
