Congrats to all the great trophies and great hunters.. I didn't even get to retrieve my first deer so count yourselves as lucky and give respect to the animal(s) and environment you hunt.
Congratulations to all these young people. Taking your first deer is an experience you will never forget. All of them are trophies in my book.
Nice first buck! my first comment was intended for a different photo.
Wow! One helluva rack!!
Impressive marksmanship there Chet. 3 bullseyes with 3 unfamiliar firearms in what I am sure were heart pounding situations!
ALL of these are amazing trophies that the shooters will never forget. congrats
I found myself focusing on the happy young faces and reflecting on experiences with my kids. There are so many 'firsts' to enjoy with your children. For those of us who hunt, the first gopher hunt, first goose hunt, first deer hunt with our sons or daughters remains vivid in our memories. Those kids of mine grew up well but they grew up too fast. I miss those days! Now I'm that Old Timer telling you to enjoy it while you can... looking back it seemed like one day they were asking for some toy and the next day they were asking for the car keys. I have a Granddaughter these days and I have promised myself to savour the moments we get to share with that little girl. I got it right the first time but I plan on enjoying it even more this time around. You don't suppose that includes going hunting with Grandpa??? What are the chances of this little girl getting a BB Gun, a .22 rifle, a shotgun and a deer hunting rifle from her Grandpa? All in good time... like I said, I plan on savoring the moments! You can expect to see her first deer picture appear on the forum in about ten or twelve years!
Congrats to all the proud hunters the smiles say it all.I remember my first deer a little 6pt he's still on the wall with my other deer.Just to see a young hunter get their first deer, to be there and share that moment is unspeakable.Take your kids,your neighbors kids, just take our youth hunting their our future.
I agree with all of you on this as I all of your statements sum up MY first deer a week ago. I couldn't get my picture up though. It's an incredible experience and will be with me forever. Congratulations to all of you!
Congratulations. The first deer will be your most cherished memory. After killing many deer over the last 45 years the memory of my first is still the most vivid.
May you all enjoy many more happy hunts.
Every first deer is a trophy, regardless of sex, or points. It is one of the most memorable occasions that a hunter can have,if not the most. It is like a first kiss, it will always be there frozen in time as the individual can always go back and savor the experience. Congratulations to all who are seen here and to others that aren't but still tagged their first deer.
For those of us who have done this for awhile, we still enjoy watching the next generation learn the ropes and we see and know the joy.
congratulation!!! there all great trophies, especially for the younger hunters.I only wish the great state of new york would lower the hunting age like other states.the smiles on those young faces is priceless.I'm 61 yrs. old and have hunted for 47 yrs.and never get tired of seeing the smiles on young hunters faces
