    I guess you can say I was pacing myself. My first buck hunt lasted an hour and a half and ended 14, yes 14, bullets later. [​IMG]

    The bucks were out in the field posing for me and trying to hold back the laughter as I volleyed seemingly endless rifle fire followed by an expletive under my breath after each miss. The funny thing is neither buck I saw even bothered to run, they just stood there unimpressed by my hunting skills, standing out there seemingly mocking me. They kinda looked like this > [​IMG]

    Yes, it was quite embarrassing but now I've got a ton of venison in the freezer! [​IMG]

    My first deer at 42! An eight point buck! [​IMG]

    Actually, before I got my buck, I helped gut one I missed and my buddy ended up getting when I [​IMG] ran out of bullets [​IMG] . We were screwing around and figured I needed a little war paint so the other bucks would take me more seriously. [​IMG] It didn't work and I had long forgotten it was there when the above picture was snapped.

    Lurky...it's amazing how time flies isn't it? Before you know it, we'll have our teeth in a glass on a bedroom nightstand... [​IMG]

    We processed it ourselves but my BIL's guestimate was about 180lbs. I have no idea whether that is alot or not since this is my first deer...

    I heard that Lurky's super power involves "mind bullets"!
