My 1st Buck/Deer

I shot my 1st deer finally after 7 years of bad luck. My wishes came true opening day at 12:20 Pm only an hour in the woods. I was standing against a big oak tree when I heard a tree crashing to my right. I hurried and turned to that direction and 20 minutes later I seen brown then a shooter buck appeared at only 10 yards. He was feeding and I could not get a shot he moved a little closer and all of a sudden he looked up at me, I froze like a statue he stared straight at me then he dropped his head as soon as he did that I shouldered my shotgun and when he looked up I dropped him.

I'm not sure of the score but his spread was 20-22 inches 8 points almost matching points on each side. I got my meat back already I just have to wait to April 2012 to get my shoulder mount from Bernie's Taxidermy in Robinson Twp Pa any one heard of him? I seen real nice mounts he did plus it only cost me $425 after taxes.
Thanks for looking and tell me what you think and what you think he scores
Dave

Re: My 1st Buck/Deer

First off...congratulations on a fine buck!

Second, I've heard good things about Bernies and probably wouldn't hesitate to give him a shot. As for score, I don't think he'll crack 100....not enough tine length from what I can see. Nevertheless, still a great first buck.

Shut Up and Drill
