This was day 2 of his first weekend deer hunting. She was behind us so he had to turn 180 degrees to take the shot. Exited center chest. Was a perfect kill.
That’s a nice buck.Congratulations young man! Dropped her where she stood. Those 20ga slugs hit hard. Looked like some spine. Who did the gut job?
My son is 31 and is still a bit shy about how to gut the deer but he does a good job at it. Marinate in teriyaki and BBQ those back straps. Don’t over cook them and you’ll be amazed at the flavor. My son has two already with the bow this year and passedup another one Saturday at 12 yards. He wants a buck now. Send some meat to the butcher and get it made into kielbasa and hotdogs.
This was my sons first buck in high school.

Very nice! And no tracking.
Good memories for both of you. Big rack to hang on the wall is nice but I personally prefer does for eating anyway. My area is over populated with them too.
