I started deer hunting when a deer season opened in Georgia. My grandfather and I planted a bean patch to attract the deer. Saw plenty of sign but no deer while on the stand for two years. Finally saw and shot my first buck the third season. Stand was a board nailed on to two limbs, with steps nailed to the tree trunk.
I bird hunted for a couple of years before deer season started. Really do miss those days watching the dogs hunt. We were lazy and drove the truck along the fence lines and got out and hunted the coveys when the dogs pointed. I remember one day when we had 20+ covey risings. Then we would hunt for the singles. This was in SWGA. Habitat has changed now. Not near as many quail now, as back then.

About 30-32 started in the mid 80's. Forget exact year.

A friend, manager at my first job in fast food, had some friends going deer hunting.

No clue what I was doing. Walked into the woods, sat against a stump, with parts of the tree on either side as cover.

A 6pt walked over, close enough to ask for a cigarette. Under 10 feet. Shaking like leaf in a hurricane, I ripped off 2 shots and missed. But, I was hooked.

In the mid 90's, the friend and I went again, and i was there when he shot his first deer.

We lost contact a little after that, and I just found out recently he died back in '14.

Thanks Mark! Peace be with ya brother.

I`ve been deer hunting for 51 years. That`s how long we`ve had a deer season in my part of Georgia. Killed my first deer in 1967, and my first kill ever was a wild turkey in 1959. I`ve been hunting anything that was in season since I was strong enough to keep both ends of a long gun off the ground at the same time.

It`s a tradition that I`ve never missed hunting on opening day.

23 years and looking for many more. However I'm finding that the harvest of the quarry I'm after is no longer becoming my main focus and I'm enjoying God's creation on a lot different level than I did when I started this journey.

Killed my first deer in 1978 with the .444 that I still have, in Braxton Ms.
I'm 55 now. Missed some years because of military service, but I've been at it steady since 91'
