Thanks guys. Not a monster, but I'm not real picky. He is one of the wider deer I've taken at 16 inches. He was lucky to be alive; had 2 huge gashes on the back of his neck from fighting and one hole almost went to his spine.
One more doe to go on my bundle license and I'm tagged out!

Nice Buck! I thought opening morning was the best in a long time! Way better than last year! Never seen so many big deer hitting the ground! Maybe Strippitman is hunting in the spot where they always go to hide, if so, hang tight, they will be back shortly. lol
Happened to catch a show on the Outdoor Channel this afternoon called "Summit's High Places" and the host, Joe Thomas, was hunting his new property "near Terre Haute, Indiana." Looked like some sweet stripper hills surrounded by fields. He missed a big palmated buck with a muzzleloader and then killed an old 6 point. Funny thing was he killed the buck from a metal folding chair instead of one of the sponsors tree stands!

Today is opening day in Maryland. Around 8:30 this morning a big doe came in. I pulled the trigger and click... My slug gun misfired. >:(. Switched to my .243 for this evenings hunt gonna see how this goes.
Missed a little doe at Hillenbrand this evening. There was 2 more with her and I was able to reload and actually had a shot at one of them, but I only had one tag and wasn't sure if I hit the first one. Tracked her for 500 yards up and down hills and didn't find a drop of blood. Shouldn't have been shooting through all those limbs anyhow. Had Mom's little JVC on my hat...
