I never get tired of reading first handgun kill stories or just handgun kills in general. Huge congrats and well done. You are now properly initiated! There is something about handgun hunting that no other hunting seems to have;it never gets old. I still get just as excited killing a nice fat doe or a fat juicy hog as I did the first time. Once again huge congrats.

Thanks! Glad you liked my recollection. I was kind of afraid I'd made it a bit long.

I was just wondering about you today. How did your season go?

Ended up shooting my buck with my rifle, wasn't able to stand hunt like I wanted. Put the rest of hunting season towards elk, but they didn't cooperate

Looking on putting in lots more practice in the off season so I'll have more opportunities next year!

Ah, well, better luck next year. That's definitely the attitude to have after a less than stellar season.

Congrats on the buck, by the way.

I got a call from Grogan's Taxidermy on Saturday that my buck was ready, so yesterday I made a trip over to Arlington, Kentucky to pick it up. The taxidermist did a great job on it.

Chance, I`am proud of you. You stuck with it and took a great whitetail for your first handgun kill. I am glad we had the chance to talk and happy that you did not need that TC barrel after all.....Can`t wait to see what`s next for you. Sincerely, James
