I'm a new member, so showing the pics of my buck from last season. I shot him at 100 yards with .223

Nicely done. My first redefines the term "dink".

Thank you for your kind responses. I hope to learn a lot from the knowledgeable people on this forum. I feel so blessed that I have friends that let me hunt on their land, and that I got a buck like that, in the first 30-45 minutes of hunting.

I was chasing a doe and had adrenaline and was shaking because I thought I was going to shoot a deer. The doe disappeared when saw this buck. He was following a big doe and was down wind of me. He stopped and looked right at me. I was pretty sure he smelled me and was about to run. I was shaking but shot so fast. I was actually aiming behind his front shoulder. I should have taken more time to make a better shot. I could have hit him in the gut or missed, but if I took longer to shoot, I thought he would run. I fired as soon as the rifle hit my shoulder because I thought he would run. It worked out but next time I will take a few seconds to make a better shot.

Now that the first one is under your belt the next will be easier.....

Take your time, control your breathing, and hammer your next one... up

Congrats! And like the others said he is way bigger than my first one. But I remember killing that little dink just like it was yesterday and it was over 30 years ago.

Yes, I can't wait. I've been looking at aerial views of the property, reading deer hunting articles, listening to hunting pod casts. Trying to prepare for this season. I bought the land owners a feeder. They put it in the front yard because they like to watch the deer. Does feed there, so I figure if it keeps the does there, that will be good during the rut. There is a bedding area in the mesquite right behind there house. I found the perfect spot to hunt just outside the bedding area. There is a big tree. I've never used a tree stand, and last December if I remember correctly, it had leaves and would be hard to see out of. I was thinking of using a pop up ground blind instead. Anyone have suggestions?
