    Wife's first buck

    Well we headed up to Georgia to visit a good buddy at Kickers and Stickers outfitter in Macon County Georgia to go deer hunting and hoping for the wife to connect with her first buck. My buddy has a good thing going up there and he offered to take us out on a management hunt for my wife. He said he had three deer he would like out of the herd. So we drove the 6 hours from here to get into Georgia and made it in time to hunt that first afternoon. All I can say is WOW. We saw 35+ deer in one afternoon half were bucks and not spikes and four points full rack solid bucks. Biggest deer I've ever seen alive. I filmed the whole adventure and I was shacking while the camera was on the tripod. I know she had been shaking bad too. Most impressive deer we saw was a 3 year old 8 that pushed a score of 135. Man he was impressive tall and had great mass. Anyways we say morning and afternoon for 5 days waiting on one of three deer to show up. Finally on day 5 in the afternoon one of the deer walks out at 120 yards. It was an 8 pointer with a broken G3. It was a 3.5 year old that just wasn't showing the progression the other deer were so he wanted it out the herd. Getting nearly dark and on the verge of being too dark for camera light. She squeezed the trigger and a solid hit. In the camera I watched it go down about 30 yards into the thick brush. I didn't say anything and watched her squirm in her seat still wondering if she hit it or not. I played the I don't know if you did I couldn't tell in the camera. Made her wait patiently for a half hour and we got down. Went to where she shot and just a pile of blood. I let her do the tracking job with my buddy and sure enough 30 yards in there he lays. The excitement on her face was worth more then gold. We will be having the full episode on Bushwackeroutdoors.com in a few weeks so hope y'all watch. Also in the episode is a young lady who has never pulled the trigger on an animal kill her first doe. And also the excitement is unbelievable. We had to tie her down when she shot cause she wanted to run out there and go look for her deer seconds after the shot.
