DannyD, a picture say's a thousand words. Your pride in your daughter's accomplishment is evident. Her joy in her accomplishment is obvious. You have a hunting partner for life. Enjoy your time together.
By the way I prefer the Win 94 30-30. But I don't cheat with a scope. LOL

Had the pleasure of watching my 13 year old son take his first deer this past season. It was great! He is stoked to say the least. He is going to bow hunt with me as well this season, going to pick up a bow at Bass pro this weekend!

Great deer! I've nothing against the new power mags, but there is nothing wrong with the old standbys either. Killed an elk with a 30-30 and he seemed as dead as the one the other guy shot with a 300 mag. Granddad killed alot of moose and caribou with a 30-30.

Way to go. I got my first deer with a 30-30 as well. It was a Winchester though.
Nice job!

It is a great feeling to have your kids take a deer. Especially their first one. My daughter wants to bow hunt with me this year but as of now she can't pull back more than 20 lbs. I really hope she can get there by deer season.
Yeah, The 30-30 and I have gone back to the range already looking forward to the upcoming season

Danny--gether a couple of 10, 15, or 20 lbs dumb bells and have her do some military presses with them, and then maybe some lat pulls that will target the 'bow' muscles. I did this with my older son when he started and couldn't pull enough poundage. There's also an exercise band that is made specifically for strengthening for bowhunting.Good luck this season to you and your daughter.--Greg

Will do,
In fact we are waiting for the off season weight program from her soccer coach. I'll add a few of those excercises if they are not already there. Between the hunting and soccer I'm sure she will be motivated enough to get started

That's pretty ironic. My user name is from my involvement in soccer, which is my second passion(passion in terms of recreation) Manuman is my nickname because of my favorite team--Manchester United. I also coach as well as play, so I know a good bit about the weight training for the game. I usually don't play when deer season rolls around, so as to not take away from family time. Got to raise those boys! I have 3 btw.If I can help you with any advice or training tips , let me know.
