Thought I would post a pic of my sons first mule deer. Not the biggest buck but one he was sure thrilled with. We hunted and hiked hard and saw a bigger buck but couldn't close the deal. Was very proud of how hard he hunted and far he hiked. He stayed up late with me skinning it in a snow storm back in camp. He wants to help me do a euro mount with it and "checks" the antlers everyday after school. I think he's hooked!

Fantastic! He'll remember that buck the rest of his life. Congratulations young man, and Dad!

Congrats to the young hunter. If we only could see more. Young people hunting...

Perfect size, big enough to be proud of but still can have dreams of getting a biggun. I too checked my first buck's antlers everyday. I'm pretty sure that's one of the symptoms of being hooked.

Great first deer! I think no matter how big our first deer was or is, we will always remember it.

Very cool! He will remember that for the rest if his life. Congrats to him and to you for getting him out there.

That's awesome. I think I have nearly as much fun taking younger hunters out than I do actually hunting my self.

He looks very proud. Good job and thanks for taking a youngster hunting.

Thanks everyone. Yeah, I didn't have a license at all this year. I think I enjoyed it more taking my boys antelope hunting in Wyoming and deer/elk hunting in Colorado and watching them!

That's awesome! I'd say he's definitely hooked. I know you are proud. Congrats to both of you!!

That's pretty cool. Congrats to the both of you.

Very nice first buck! Congrats to the both of you. By the way, I still have the horns from my first buck and look at them often. It was a very nice forked horn blacktail in 1982, I was 12. You never forget the first one!

I love the smile. I took my wife out for her first hunt last week and she shot a good buck (not trying to high jack your thread). The smile on a new hunters face is the best. Congrats to you and your son.

Congrats to both you and your son! That is a great first buck. I can't wait til I can take my daughter out for her first.

He did great! Nice one. He'll be hooked for sure

Congratulations! The first one is sooooo special. I remember my first one like it was yesterday.

My first buck ended up as a flowerbed ornament at my Mom's, and now she has no idea what happened to it. What's with that Mom?

Anyway...nice job to both of you. Hurry and get it on a wall somewhere.

Great Deer, congratulations to you both. There is nothing like helping your son get his first deer!

Great deer! Glad he wants to help with the Euro. Tanning the hide is also a great activity to try [and a great way to commemorate the deer.]

Perfect! You now have a hunting partner for the rest of your days!!
