Well second day of deer season here in New York and i was out with my dad in the woods seeing how good my paintball skills would be on a deer. So it was about four o'clock today and i was in the woods listening for sounds hoping it would be the 4 pointer that i saw this morning (New York has a law that anyone over the age of 17 can not shot a deer that has less than 3 points on one side), so meaning that me age of 16 can shot a spike. But anyhow im slowly turning my head around looking and i turned my head to look behind me to see that there is a deer staring right at me, so i didnt move at all just stared at the thing hoping that it wouldnt run. At first i thought it was the four pointer until it started to move slowly then i had noticed it looked like a six, so it went behind a small tree so i slowly turned and raised my gun (AR-15) and it popped out so i aimed and Bang. The deer started to run off then i saw it slow down and it started to walk so i radio'd my dad who was only on the other side of the hill and he said stay put and listen for a minute to hear if it fell down. Then about a minute later i hear him radio to me to look where it was standing when i shot, so i did. The thing was only 15-20 yards tops from where i sat, so i walked over and looked, nothing so i was thinking that would seriosly suck if i missed my first deer. Well i started walking more and found the blood trail and followed it, all of a sudden my dad radios to me, saying get over here quick so i did. Shocked out of my life i show up to were the deer and my dad were standing and noticed that i had not shot a 6 pointer but it was an 8. My dad was shocked out of his life believing that i shot an 8 pointer for my second day out and first year hunting deer. He was very impressed. We got it to my grandfathers and weighed the thing and he came out to be 135 pounds. My dad said that the biggest deer that he, my grandfather, and my one uncle shot over the years weighed in at 125 at the most. So after a nice day of hunting i was very excited and as a gift my dad said that he would mount the deer for me

nice job man. the only thing that sucks about killing a nice deer for your first time is that you may be disapointed when your next deer isn't as big. but, congrats to your first deer.
135 lbs. is that the field dressed weight? 135 lbs. is not that heavy for a buck.

Legal antlered deer is defined as: A legally antlered deer must have at least one antler that is three inches or longer measured from the base of the burr. Special regulations apply in the Pilot Antler Restriction area.
As for the AR, I hope to god you were using 5 round mags - anymore, and they'll arrest you for poaching if they catch you.

Nice job dude, and with an AR, +1
Ditto on the 5rd mag (does it count if you feed them by hand? ie no mag on your person?)
