Greetings!  This is my first deer ever taken and I was truly happy regardless of its size.  My only remorse is that it could have had potential to be something "nice" in the sense of a rack.  Rack size is no concern of mine, unless the law states otherwise, hehe.  It was late and appeared to be a doe...I didn't have the time to inspect the head closely through the scope.

I was happy to get the deer because it was my first and the first deer among my two brothers who hunt and my dad.  It also meant that I was able to contribute food to my family members and aunt/uncle/cousin while "refugees" post-K.  Gave me a good boost of accomplishment and proved to my oldest brother that I can sit still enough and not make noise to harvest a deer. 
Note the hodge-podge of camo-  no I was not shinging with that headlamp.

I took this to show and record what double lung shot looks like.  The blood trail was fairly easy to follow but I took my time to learn from it.  Deer ran about 30 years and shot with a 170 grain winchester powerpoint .30-30 at about 18 yards.

I am impressed too that you took the time to enjoy your hunt and trailing your deer; those are good signs of a Sportsman. And nothing beats being responsible for the food on the table. Well done !
P.S. My first looked to be the same size as yours. One is better than none

Not sure where you were hunting, but in Maine that would be about 1 1/2 hours past legal shooting time. How could you even tell it was a deer let alone be able to shoot?

Was hunting near Baton Rouge, LA where I fled for the storm.  LA law says hunting is allowed 1/2 hour before sunrise and 1/2 hour after sunset.  5:30 was just before last light, perhaps by minutes.  I was going to wait for what I felt to be the bigger deer nearby but it would have been dark by the time it appeared (I could hear it lurking a few yards away from the smaller one).  I felt I may not get another chance and wanted to get meat for us to eat.  Luckily it only went about 30 yards.

Tasted better than beef, that's for sure!  I wish I had more of them.
