Default My daughters first buck

This all started last deer season when my daughter starting hunting with rifle in-hand for the first time. We had agreed that she would have to shoot a Javelina first before getting to take a deer. Of course the first animal out was a mature eight but she stayed patient and told me that that was the buck she wanted when it was time. She ended up getting her Javelina but we never saw the eight again all last deer season. Fast forward to this year and she was on a mission. We hunted most weekends looking for the “big eight” as she called him. Well everything finally came together this weekend and he showed himself without a care in the world. He strolled in pushing the other deer out and settled in perfectly broadside. My daughter made quick work of getting setup and took one big breath and squeezed the trigger. She went from shaking to tears of joy within seconds and kept saying “I did it!” Not sure who was more excited, her or me. After lots of hugs and high fives and a little work, the “big eight” is at the taxidermist to be shoulder mounted.
