Default Daughter took her personal best

My daughter took her personal best this weekend after hunting him hard since late bow season. She took a risk and passed on an old 10 point opening day of gun season to hold out for this deer. We hunt a 150 acre low fence Hill Country place with pressure around us so each time we sat with no luck it had us second guessing ourselves. I'm proud of her for holding out for what she really wanted and blessed that it all came together for her.

Thanks for reading along and best of luck to you guys the rest of the season.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

To tps7742 - She is shooting a youth model Remington 700 in 243win with the stock that allows for adding spacers under the recoil pad. I've been able to adjust the length of pull as needed as she's grown. It's been a great rifle over the years and is very accurate. Currently she's shooting an 80 grain Barnes factory bullet. Very fast and low recoil but I'm considering changing it up soon...
