Having already killed my deer for the year I find myself thinking of past kills. I recall how different hunting was then. I was remembering the first deer I ever killed. And was wondering about others here. Do you recall the first deer you ever killed? Recall what equipment you used? Like your truck how was it equipped, Gun, light, camping supplies, deer processors, stands and blinds. Many things have changed since I first killed a deer and I thought this might be a good time to hear some of your stories also.

This is my first full year of hunting, and so far I haven't killed anything yet. I am hunting public land, so I'm at least getting a lot of exercised with armed hiking. I know how gratifying it will be once I finally get on an animal. I did take a shot at a coyote at about 200 yards when on a hog hunt with my kid, but barely missed. My thirteen year old has a great eight point and a nice hog on his record, so I have some catching up to do!

I killed my first deer in Bracketville 29 years ago but I was 12. My Grandparents owned 20 acres right on the edge of town had a Mini Storage & Liquor store right in front of the house. Had a gazebo out behind the house with a deer blind on top. little fork horned buck, still have the antlers.

First deer was a small basket 8 point. No feeder, blind, stand or anything like that. Sitting on the ground with my dad when I was about 12 years old (15 years ago). I was using a 6mm with a Simmons 3x9, about a 75 yard shot. I will never forget that evening.

Mill Swamp Hunting Club. Dixie County, Florida.

Tree Lounge Telescopic Climbing Stand and a .270.

I was 15. Popped a little spike and then starting screaming like a complete idiot. Like screaming like I had just won the Super Bowl.

There isn't much I wouldn't give to relive that experience.

1978, I was 10 years old, Mason Co, off of TX29 between Llano and Mason. It was a cold and windy day, so me and Grandpa decided to hunker down behind a huge granite boulder to shelter from the wind. After sitting for about an hour we suddenly see a herd of deer running our way. The last deer in the bunch was a buck. He ran up and stopped in front of us at 30 yards. I heaved Grandpa's old sportized military surplus 30.06 (by L.C. Smith Typewriter Co) with Weaver 6x to my shoulder. I settled the cross hairs on his chest and fired. The buck piled up on the spot. He was a young 10 pt with a massive 12" inside spread. Still have him on a plaque on the wall.

A spike grin DeWitt County almost 46 yrs ago when I was 12 yrs old while sitting in a blind by myself. I killed him using a Remington Model 700 BDL 6mm at 29 steps in a thick fog. You can see where my love for killing spikes started roflmao
