I took this guy this afternoon. Family, friends, and friend's kids have taken decent bucks in the 2&1/2 years I've owned the place, but I've just shot does, and culls, and pigs (and axis grin ), and whined a lot. In this the 3rd season on the place, this guy got my heart pumping some, so I shot him. No monster, but a good hill country buck, in my opinion. I've killed slightly bigger elsewhere, but I may get a shoulder mount and put him over the fireplace. There's wider, and more points, on camera, but there's something about a symmetrical 8.

Nice deer, congrats. If it gets the heart pumping then you had a good time.

Love that feeling.

First buck off the place I would definitely think you would mount and hang. Congratulations.

Congratulations! I'm kind of in the same boat on my place and would be proud to get a solid eight like yours!

That's a beautiful deer. He'll make a fine mount.
