I just came back to my friends house here in Virginia because I go to school out here. Well, On new years day( Jan. 1) I shot my first deer. We were hunting with some people that like to run dogs. So they set me up at the bottom of some pines. I had been sitting there for about 2 hours when I heard a dog barking, and the next thing i see is this huge doe come running at me. As she passed by about 10 feet from me,  I shot her with my shotgun using #1 Buck. She did a flip and then rolled for about 5 feet. She was about 100 pounds. I had shot her through the heart, lungs and through the jugular in the neck. It has been a pretty good first hunting season, I got my first turkey and deer this season. I will post the pictures when I get them developed.
