Deer season opened in Maryland on Friday, especially in my son's back yard. It didn't take long for him to harvest his first deer of the new season, this nice 5X5 buck with high tines. There was a bigger one that hung up about 50 yards out but he'll have to wait for another day. The hard part is that now my son has to take two does before he can shoot his next buck. What a rough life! And the really, really hard part is that this buck dropped close to sixty or seventy yards from my son's back door.

I stand "corrected" CaV-man. That was a nice ten pointer. Hey, a friend of mine sent me this picture today. Let me know if you think this feller is "BIG" or not.

Well, that's probably just an average deer. I'd hold out for something bigger, at least this early in the season......
Holy crap, that's huge. Does your friend know the person who shot it? Looks like a lady, I think..... Very nice!

I was wondering when the forst glory shots would appear. It seems we are off to a fine start for the 2012-13 season.

Beautiful buck, My whitetail
My whitetail hunt is still about 7 weeks away. Wyoming antelope round 1 is only 2 weeks from today though and things get rolling quickly after that.

you just had
Hey 25, you just had to tell me about your upcoming antelope hunt didn't ya? Makes me sick. I LOVE hunting those speed goats. They're about as fun as any hunt I've ever been on. Good luck to you. Can't wait to see the pictures. If I were you, I think I'd hold out for a 16 incher though.

This is actually my favorite
This is actually my favorite hunt for a good time and ease of hunting and game retrieval. The are being hunted this year is not a real trophy area and gets hutned pretty hard so not too worried about it. Just out for a good time with my dad and son.
Just over 2 weeks after the first one I'll be heading back up with BikerRn for another round for his first ever run at them. It's gonna be a great year. But then most of them are anymore.
