Default Little Girl 1 deer 0

The day finally arrived. My youngest girl was old enough to start hunting last year but it didn't work out for me to take her. This year I told her that she would go first before anybody else. So she was extremely excited to finally get to hunt instead of watching her brothers and sister hunt. Today was opening day.
Her brother kept telling her she wasn't going to get one.

To make a long story short he was wrong.
The real problem was finding it. Boy that was a nightmare. We looked for an hour and 20 minutes and almost gave up. Then I finally stumbled upon it. It was really rather hot out so I was worried about not finding it for so long. The shot was absolutely a great shot. I saw it kick up its back legs and take off so I knew it was a good hit but it went into the weeds around the old farmstead. The weeds were about 15 feet tall and thick.

heres what it looked like









This was not easy walking for an old man like me.

But we prevailed and found her.

The drag was also horribly tough even though her brother helped. I think I need to take a bigger kid.

This is her and her doe



yes she is a girl . You just cant see her hair here is a pic of my little punkin.




It was a Knight Littlehorn, 60 gr 777 and a 260 gr PT Gold at 87 yards.

The older girl is up next as it's a ladies first year this year.

Awesome! Congratulations to the little lady. I'll bet she had a long face near the end of that search, followed by jumping up and down.

Just taking her out qualifies you as a hero! That was a good shot. What was the bullet/charge she used? Congratulations on a job well done to both her and you.

Congrats, that's good shot shot-placement for a first kill. My own daughter started asking and guess we will start practicing for next years winter...
