Default Got my 1st Deer

Got my 1st deer this afternoon about 430pm. Used my Windham 16 inch carbine and a 62gr Federal Fusion 223. I figure distance was around 75 to 100yds. Will pace it off tomorrow. Deer jumped in the air and dropped DRT.

Very first one? Congratulations! Sausage, steaks and stews plus just a couple of small roasts since that thing is small. I like my venison steaks with grilled onions, maybe some mushroom sauce, with hot home made bread with chunks of cold butter. Mmm-mmm can't be beat.

I dropped it off with a local processor on Sunday AM. Going with burger and back strap roasts. Figure with meat in the freezer I can go for a bigger Buck.

I have another Anterless Tag + an Any Deer Tag. So plan to get at least 2 more.
Would like some summer sausage and need to try some steaks / roasts!

Enjoy the meat..... Be prepared in the future that the bigger bucks are not as tasty as the does and young bucks.

Congrats—keep at it and good luck. I’ve been bagging 3 or 4 deer a year for about 15 years and I still learn something new every year.

UP HERE in the north woods...
our chipmunks are bigger than your deer down there in the south.

Congrats though.

I took mine way to early in life to really appreciate what happened. I was 7 when I leaned my Remington model 721 in .270win over the log, looked through the 4X Weaver blew away my first buck. With the recoil I didn't even see it go down. Just boom and sky then no deer in sight. My dad was sitting about 10 feet away and told me I got him.

Like a first kiss
a first crush
a first kill... on all sorts of... critters is a memory that doesn't go away soon, and some never do.

I shot one with a crossbow and a second with the 870 this year. I enjoy watching the deer on my game camera videos more than I do shooting them. But we like the meat. Can't say its free meat if you add up the expenses.

Congrats

In my opinion, deer meat has to have garlic salt on it....unless you are using Old Bay.


I just lost the spot that I've hunted for years. It's off to unfamiliar territory for me and so far I've only seen 2 little ones.
