My First Deer Hunting Attempt
Well, I went up to TN last week to spend Thanksgiving with my Girlfriend and met her family. It was a great Thanksgiving lots of great food, including deer meet mmmmm. After the eating was over my Girlfriends dad says "So I hear you've never been hunting and want to try it out." I've always wanted to go but just haven't had the opportunity to. So I jumped on this one! Here dad and bro outfitted me with some boots, clothes, jacket, and a Remington 700 chambered in 25-06 (My mossberg 500 18.5" or AR15 just isn't the best deer rifle). At this point we headed up to there clear cut then myself and her cousin went down to the blinds a few hours before sunset. We sat there...... and sat there...... and sat there..... Man was it hard to stay awake with a full belly of turkey!!! Well, the sun set and it finally got to dark to see through the scopes so we headed in. Score one for the deer and notta for me. One of her uncle's a few miles from us did take a nice 8 point that night. Even though I didn't see anything I had a great time. I think my heart was pumping the entire time knowing at any moment one might pop out of the brush. They invited me back before the end of the season and may just have to take them up on this. Now that I've had a little taste I want to take my first deer.
Here is a pic before I headed out. What a newbee! lol
