My brother and I went hunting at his camp in Vernon Parish. It was 12/7/12 Friday morning he dropped me off at stand around 550 he then left to drive to his stand. It was really foggy that morning, around 7:10 right when you could start making things out in the early morning fog, I looked left at the feeder which we had fed the afternoon before then looked right there i saw it, a silouette of a big buck standing up on a hill he was looking down then looked up it was then i realized he was massive. I had already picked up my 270 and had him in my scope and shot. I hit him right behind the front right shoulder it was a lung shot!! He was 100 yards away. I tried calling my brother the share my excitement of my first deer!! I hopped out the stand maybe only hitting about two steps to go look for blood and trail him. I walked into the woods about 50 yards and there he was laying next to a tree. I drug him out the woods and waited for my brother to come. We loaded him up in the truck and brought him back to the camp, lifted him up and weighed him. He was a 12 point weighing 180 pounds!! We skinned him and everyone at the camp was congradulating me telling me he was a really big buck that i was lucky to kill one that big he was a trophy mount. We brought him to get mounted he was measured and measured in at 158 2/8!!!!! I am pumped this is my first deer!!! I'm defiantly hooked.
