Had my first hunt this morning and had a blast. The tag was for Antlered White Tail Cous deer. My two buddies I went with also work with me so we all got early reliefs at work and left at 5 am. We were set up and glassing as the sun came out. My friends spotted a about 9 deer/does and damn I was impressed. They would tell me exactly where to look and it really takes some experience to spot them. They'd say "See that barrel cactus, well about 5 yards to the right of it" and i'd stare and stare and finally see some movement and spot. It wass cool though. So they found one spike buck but passed on it. Then we spotted this one and decided to go after it. My one friend stayed on the hill and guided me and the other friend in. Ended up makin the shot at just under 500 yards. Here is the rifle chillin as the sun comes up Me posing with the buck by the time we packed it out and quartered it, it was about 12. My friends decided to help a guy they know who was hunting in the same area. He had drawn a tag 6 years in a row and never made a kill. I went along and helped glass, and believe it or not i spotted the one he killed. It was only a spike but he was really excited. Here's me glassing and my buddy taking a break! ahah. All in all I had a great time. Just got home and I'm exhausted, gotta be back up early for work. Let me know what you guys think!
