Congrats!! Just out of curiosity, which is harder? Whitetail or Blacktail?
In my opinion black tail are harder, the terrain they live in and how hard they are to pattern makes them really difficult.

Congratulations on both the deer and promotion! Would love to see a pic of the gun and knife.  :tup: You did your grandpa proud.

I'm from NH and we had to drag them out whole, too. I think blackies are a lot harder to hunt than whiteys. How about you?
  Took a picture with the knife to show my dad I was using the ole buck knife. I didn't get a picture with the gun, and its stored at another house due to on base rules. It's just a charter arms 30-06 probably worth near nothing but it has value to me. He got it from a guy who owed him $ for a job and offered a trade instead. He gave it to me when I was young because the scope on the Remington 243 I was using kept fogging up and this gun was already sighted in, just shot two rounds to confirm and I was ready to hunt that afternoon. He said I could keep it after. I also shot my first bear with this rifle on Halloween now that i think about it, maybe it has a lucky day.

Congratulations!

Your last pic got photo bombed by a set of bucknuts,  :chuckle:

Great success story, thanks for sharing.

That you know the real value in the gun your grandfather gave you, the importance of carrying and using the knife he carried, and that you thought of him during your hunt is the sweet spot of your story, and no doubt the highlight of your hunt.

Congrats!

Nice work! I remember my first blacktail season very well, walking around the woods for endless days seeing lots of sign thinking to myself do blacktail bucks really exist or are the a figment of my imagination? :chuckle: that first year I shot a young buck on the very last day of late buck
