I see a small spike
« on: October 18, 2014, 08:28:34 AM »
This is our first year. We are sitting 50yds from a small spike. We feel he is to small. This would be our first deer to harvest. What do you guys think.

First year. 50 yards. Great meat. I'd shoot but I'm trigger happy.
Yes, my FJ is pink, I'm all about Team Jacob, beer is not for the horses nor is whiskey for the men, they are both for me.

He had buck fever and probably missed, doesn't want to tell us after all it was only 50 yds away. :chuckle:

Doesn't want to get his I-Phone 6 bloody.  :chuckle:  Hopefully he's elbow deep in the chest cavity getting the goods out. Don't pass on the first day what you'd take on the last!

im dying to know did he shoot the deer or not? is it only me but it seems like there have been a lot of these suspenseful threads this year. oh well gives me a reason to check my phone every now and then at work.

Tagging to see if he did.
