How Big was Your First Deer?

I spent a good part of the last couple Springs trying to get Cutter, my pooch, to find sheds. People make quite a bit of moola on sheds out here. Even if you only find a few, it's worth it. You get to spend time in the mountains, get some exercise and maybe make a few bucks. This was Cutter's first legitimate find. We were snowshoeing the other day and he came back with it hanging out of his mouth. It was a bit random and unexpected but it is a shed. It took a couple years and it's not very big but it's a start. What was your first buck?
FYI, Fish, Wildlife and Parks recommends giving the shed-hunting a rest until some of the snow melts in order to not put too much stress on the animals and the reality is, I doubt many of the bulls have dropped their antlers. This was obviously a young deer, which was probably a little premature.
Keep 'em where they live...
