Here is the professor with his doe. This is his first deer, and he was so pumped. Hope he gets a buck.

So happy for him. Thought of the professor a few times this year when I was on the stand. Just love seeing new hunters put in the work and finally get one on the ground.

I got my wife's first and only deer on camera a few years ago and just happened to have it ok video mode. No sound but it's pretty cool. Congrats to you both!!

I just want to make sure we all know that while this guy is 'the professor' [is he even A professor?] I am now and always will be theprofessor. :)

Congrats, lil professor.

Putting out a bag of corn is not "putting in the work", heck its not even hunting, just shooting. I've been hunting (still) most mornings and shooting (over feeder) in the afternoons. Taught my boys theres a big difference in hunting and shooting. Call it what it is.

I’m sorry you don’t think that is hunting. The professor has put in a lot of work. Scouted with me. Helped hang every stand we have. BTW, not all are set on corn. I wanted him in that shooting house Sat morning because I knew he’d see deer. Normally see 3 or more bucks chasing there in the morning, and not around the corn. Saying he didn’t put in work is a shitty thing to say. He hunted 4 times before he saw his first deer. We aren’t overrun with deer. His first deer, and you come off with that. Very surprised that you would demean anyone’s first deer, regardless of how they killed it. Didn’t expect that from you.

Tickled to death for him and his first deer, hope he gets many more. I may be in the minority but to me it's shooting and not hunting. I shot a doe over corn last night. Did i do anymore work other than get them conditioned to come to corn? Nope. Does that make me a hunter? Not in my eyes. Three does, which one do i want to shoot at 37 yds with a high powered rifle. I was shooting or sniping, not hunting.

I tend to agree with 1wildcatfan.

I have killed one over corn and it really didnt feel like an accomplishment. I went 2 YEARS without even seeing a deer back in the 80's. How i kept at it i will never know.

I enjoy the satisfaction of patterning them and harvesting one the most. Alas the farm i hunt now is just fields on top and jungle bluffs on the sides. I plant food plots. I fill the freezer typically and am thrilled to do so but i dont get the satisfaction of scouting them and finding where they are, etc. Hunting over my food plots and corn is pretty much like going to the supermarket for me. But yeah...I do it.
