    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    Thanks everyone the more i think about it, and look into it, it seems i am rather lucky to have such a great deer for my first ever deer, i was just hoping to shot a doe as my first one but since he decided to come near me first, im now glad i shot him.
    Now the fun begins of hunting number 2. so ill be heading out to the woods in a few weeks hopefully for a doe or two .
    and also start working on doing a plague mount for my first set of horns!

    Congratulations! I too have only been hunting a few years, and got my first deer last year - a button and 7pt. I remember the whole thing like it was a movie I have seen 100 times. My guy was BIG but not a trophy rack so I did a "museum mount" - sounds like you are too. Very happy I did, as that deer will always be my "First Buck" and his skull/horns are proudly displayed in my home office! Youtube had some good videos on how to do it. I used the boil method - took two days and was a lot of work ( Stinky Work) but well worth it! Here is to many more great shots!

    Congrats! great to see more and more people getting to experience the joys of bow hunting! A good buddy of mine who just started bow hunting this year missed one last night, it went out to about 60 yards, then slowly made its way back towards us.. When it came into 20 yards or so again he smoked it the second time! No better feeling than seeing someone else harvest a trophy in their eyes! Congrats again!
