Default My daughters first deer!

Well my daughter got invited to go on a TYHP hunt at Bells Hollow Ranch this weekend, and would be her first time in the driver's seat. We arrived Friday and she only had to shoot twice and she was ready to go. Saturday morning we saw a ton of deer and a few does but all were in too much traffic. Saturday evening at the end of the hunt a pig came out and our Guide kinda rushed her and she hit it a little far back. Sunday morning came and we only had 2 hours to hunt, and right at 7:30 some does came in, my daughter got steady and BOOM!!! The doe death kicked went about 30 yds and piled up. My daughter was thrilled and I was too. 30 min later the does funneled back in and BOOM! This time taking out both shoulder and the doe bulldozed about 20 yds and it was done. She got her first and 2nd deer this morning and I couldn't be more proud, considering 2 months ago she would always have a nervous breakdown down when we would go shoot. Lol
