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
