CONGRATS!!! i just got my first deer in virginia. i was lucky that a friend scouted down there for me(im from PA) i got a decent 7 but i am very very lucky. to tell the truth i would have rathered a spiker or a doe for my first deer :/ i dont think im going to beat my buck in a long time. lol. now you can beat yours with a little time scouting. nice spike. how long were the spikes? looks like 5inches? good job.
