About 1975, 5 point was running, seemed like 100 yds but was probably 50, 32 Winchester special with open sights

My brother has that same gun.  Only rifle he has.  I always really liked it  but I got a 30/30 ammo was easier to find. He had a peep on it and it seemed to be a good shooter.

That frickin sucks. People suck. Sorry to hear that.  My 3030 was my first gun ever back in 1986 , when my Dad went halves on a deer rifle with me.  It's still the one I carry most of the time.

MY first harvest ever, 11/12/2001 Day after Veterans Day. I was 15 years old.. A monday we had off from school.. Shot him 45minutes after I had just missed one of the biggest bucks Ive seen in my entire life, standing in the exact same spot... at 16 steps 8ft from the ground. Lol.

That miss was intentional I am sure.  Don't want to set that bar to high too early.

The day before I got my first buck with a bow, I missed a small basket 6.  

Glad it worked out the way it did... clean miss and I took the weird 7 point the next day.  

To this day the only atypical buck I've seen on the property.

First buck also first deer. 1999. Taken at around 9:30am from the ground at something around 40 yards with a Winchester model 94 30-30 that my dad took his first deer with. I thought to be sick that Monday and didn't make it to school.

Still hunt that same spot. Chair placed behind a big pine tree trunk. The frame to the chair is still there laying in the duff probably. Shot my first bow buck a stone throw away. It was a similar size symmetrical 6pt.b13613b394fdae4b31abf80b87c78ac9.jpg

Intentional, I wish I was that good.  More like unintentional from shaking so badly, i didnt even have the pin settled anywheres near the deer and i squeezed that trigger! lol, Watched him slowly walk off.. I remember it clear as day. Missed him by a lot lol

I was at our Training Center today, where I keep my mounts, snapped a photo of my first buck/first deer. November 17th, 2001. I watched him come 100 yards across a pasture, and he entered the woods at around 20yds. My first shot with my 1100 hit good, and my second was a spine shot. I was so excited, I fell off of the ladder while I was climbing down. I was fortunate to take him while hunting with my uncle, who got me into deer hunting. If you’ll notice, his left ear is where my screen name is derived from.

The right one is split as well, you can’t see it so well in the photo.

Never had him scored, I’m not sure what he would go. I should say, this isn’t a New York deer, but from my home state of Illinois. I was a sophomore in High School, and it was my 3rd season of hunting, I’d missed a few does, but he was a great first.

I shot  my first buck on the day after Thanksgiving, 1966...No pictures..Probably didn't have any film for the Kodak Insta-Matic...

I shot him with a win M37 12 gauge single shot at about 75 yards...The shotgun had been stripped of bluing by someone and never reblued..It had a tiny little front bead, and, of course, no rear sight...

I was aiming at the chest and missed him completely the first shot..The second shot ( still aiming for the chest) I hit him right behind the ear....

He was a 3 point, with a fork on one side and a spike on the other...However, I was so excited I did not realize he had a fork on one side...Dragged him about 200 yards  up over a steep hill by the spike...It kept slipping out of my hand and I formed and broke two water blisters on my hand by the time I got him to the top...

This is my 1st buck 8pt, shot him with a Bear recurve bow November 17 1978. I was 18 yrs old and it was the last Friday of bow season. I went out early before school started and shot him 7:30 am and was late for school.

I was 5 months old when you shot your first buck! Damn...

I have no pics of my first buck. I know it was a buttons buck, a huge button buck! I think it scored 2 1/8 P/Y.

Cant find a pic of my first deer at the moment, a spike. But this was was my second buck. Taken where I live now. Circa 1990.

ETA, I see I previously posted my first.
