Dad got one (Vermont)

My Dad got a decent one in Vermont opening morning. Shot at 30 yards with his old Springfield 30-30 bolt action. 8 point, 161 pounds. It was good to get back there for a few days and hunt with my Dad, and him getting one was bonus.....

On a side note, as he was skinning it a few days later, he came across a 4 inch aluminum arrow and broadhead, stuck in the spine near the backstrap. nly a small amount of localized infection. He searched all over for an entry scar or something, to no avail. Figure it was shot last year and healed over. Deer was aged at 2 1/2 years old.

Anyway, hope the photos attach....
