Default Best hunt of my life

With work and sports and friends my daughter rarely comes hunting. when she does it usually turns into a laughing out loud mess ,she is hilarious , and ya Can't keep that girl quiet. This December she'll be 10 and she said she wanted to go this weekend. Volleyball kept us out this morning and I have to work tomorrow so we got one shot tonight. Had a nice buck come in run a lap in the pen then he was off. About 45 minutes later a few does stood in the lane about 120 yards out. She said she wanted one so I put the scope on 6 power and put the Howa in the window. She was freaking out. I had to get her to calm down took a little bit but once the biggest doe was clear she sent it. The 123 gr SST hit the deers shoulder and drop her right there. She started to freak out even more she had killed her first deer and it hadn't taken a step. We hugged it out for a while and I knew it's the best hunt I'd even been on.
