Hey, I just wanted to tell everyone that I shot my very first deer yesterday! Even though it's gun season here now, I got it with my bow. I thought it was a doe when I shot it, but it turned out to be a large button buck. To see pictures and read the story go here:

Just thought some of you would like to know! I am so proud of it!

...CAT hunting with me next time!

That is a pretty nice sized button buck.

My first deer ions ago was also a small(er) button buck. Came under my tree at about 5 yards broadside. Luckily there was a decent breeze to cover up the sound of my arrow falling off the nock and me fumbling and "CLANKING" the arrow on the side of the bow! Finally got it back up there and at 5 yards broadside even I couldn't miss! The deer went about 35 yards and did the "Mo, Larry the cheese" thing on the ground!

Good job Amy!

Amy, that is a great sized button buck. I am sure I speak for everyone here, when I say that buck could not have been harvested by a better person. My wife also says, "Awesome". Way to go.
