Thanks everyone,  he's still pumped up about it. In the end, it's great memories and meat in the freezer. He's ready to get another one but I'm pretty sure it's my turn......

Wow, he's a big 'un! You must be BURSTING with pride in your son. Him too!

It's only fitting that he'll feed your family and nourish the young hunter to become big & strong like the buck.

Gonna have the head mounted?

I am much happier being able to witness him taking it. We're gonna have a shoulder mount done for his bedroom wall, although I tried k get his mother to let us put it in the den as soon as you walk in the door, hehehe
