1st KILL!!

Postby Flhunter » Wed Jan 27, 2016 3:34 pm

Hi everyone! I'm new to HB and new to hunting. I got my license last year but was only able to hunt one month due to ankle surgery. This was my first full season of hunting at age 37 and man I absolutely love it. I have been after bucks and hunt some pretty high pressure land in Florida. I have seen lots of does even during doe season but for one reason or another did not harvest an animal. Well this weekend I was sitting in the stand about to get down when a group of about 15 pigs came through! I was so excited it was hard to pick which one I wanted to shoot. I picked what looked like the biggest one and blasted him. I knew it was a good shot because he instantly dropped. I didn't know how good until I butchered him. 1st kill was a dead center heart shot! Unbelievably awesome!

Outstanding! No time like the present to start hunting! This is the first year in a long time I did not shoot a single pig. I usually shoot one for some spicy sausage. What area of FL are you hunting.

Being crabby is a choice. Being positive is also a choice. It's now your turn to choose.
