Congrats enders,first deer doesnt have to be a monster. Heck,i am still waiting for one,but i am having fun even without getting a big buck. Any deer harvest is a success,and you will never forget the first one. Deer that is...

I got my hunting license at the end of October, went out on 5 hunts before this one and today with the help of friends I got a button buck which I thought was a doe so I took it. Even though I hate the idea of taking such a young buck I can’t take it back so here he is. My fist deer ever. It was a hell of a hike and a grueling hike back. Until next season.

Congratulations Enders!

Don’t be picky this early in your hunting career. Any deer is a trophy and should be treated as such. Most I know including myself went a couple of years hunting before scoring our first deer.

Enjoy the healthy meat that you just got with your own hard work!

Way to go ! My first year bow hunting ( 1989 ) I killed a button buck as well ,one of my more memorable hunts to this day . Hey anyone can hit a big buck in the kill zone , as its so large .....

Job well done .

Congrats Enders. I shot my share of small bucks when I was learning the game. And I was excited as hell every time. Enjoy it.

A hearty congratulations on your first deer Enders!! Well done sir.

Over the many years I've deer hunted, I have killed a few deer. But none were as sweet as that very first one!!!  Like others have said, each and every deer you take home is a trophy! Enjoy the bounty.

Congratulations!!!!  Just make sure that there are no regrets  before you pull that trigger. Be thankful with any deer you harvest as its a blessing to be able to do what we do. I have taken my fair share of big bucks, but have no problem taking does or young bucks if i feel like i need extra meat. In the end that kill should ALWAYS make you feel thankful. Well done young man, you are off to a great start. And remember you dont need to explain yourself to anyone why you took a certain deer, big or small, male or female, as long as its done legally and makes you HAPPY. Have fun out there!!!! BTW great picture.

no new hunter should be picky and choosy about any deer at. Congrats and welcome to the money draining, time sucking obsession that is the NY whitetail :)

Congrats! I ate tag soup my first year as I'm sure many others on here have. Like others have said, any deer is a trophy and I'd strongly encourage you to focus on having fun, learning how the deer behave and shooting whatever gives you a good opportunity as you start down the wormhole that is deer hunting. Don't worry about what anyone else does or shoots and don't ever let anyone try to make your kill feel any less special because it wasn't a certain age or size.

Exactly! Every deer legally and ethically taken is a trophy.

Any body in the woods today ? If so try not to laugh  at about what I’m about to post. You’ll spook the deer. I climbed up on our Florida flat top roof with extension ladder    Guessing 20’.  Hung 4 strands of new LED icicle lights  Go to climb down and ladder slides a bit in the grapple that’s been falling    After wearing harnesses and lifelines in stands all year I’m like f this. My head will split like a watermelon on the driveway.  Cmon neighbor let your dog out so I discretely ask you to hold ladder.  Hour and 15 minutes goes by and finally a salt truck is coming    I flag them down and ask to hold the ladder. Guy says last year he got stuck on eave of house and called his buddy to come over to let him in through window. Feeling a bit dumb but I’m still alive. There’s your laugh for the day at my expense.  Good luck to anyone hunting today.

Any good views from up there? (i.e., hot neighbor).

 

also your ring cam shows that your wife pushed the ladder out.

Congrats and welcome to the addiction.  Enjoy the feast. It will be some of the best eating you will have ever had.

I'm just thankful you made it out of that adventure well and good!  Smart of you to not risk coming down that ladder! 

Glad it all worked out Jay. 

My Christmas lights stopped working after we got the 30 inches of snow. I'm not going to bother finding out why either!

I knew a guy that ended up calling local fire department to rescue him from tree stand. He had a climber and never attached top to bottom.... you know what happened. Fire department was faster than any of his friends could get there.
