My daughter has to have the worst luck hunting. My son has shot 3 gobblers and all 3 hunts probably lasted 10 mins total. We put in a lot of miles before she finally got her first turkey this past spring.
She shot a doe 2 years ago and my son shot a buck. Last year was her turn for a buck and it just never happened.
Then my son shot a buck the last day of the season.
So she was up again this year.
She travels from Snyder to Lubbock 3 days/week for gymnastics and is extremelt hard on herself and critical of herself always thinking she can do better. Its a good attitude to have, but she can take it to the extreme and we certainly dont push her.
Well.last year and this year she has not missed a single hunt when at the deer camp and we finally had a decent buck come in. Cant say that about most of the guys we hunt with. Weve been watching 10-15 deer a day and have seen nothing over 2.5 years old until today.
She made it happen. Deer fell in its tracks then 5 mins later stood up and walked off. I told her to hit him again as i couldnt tell where she hit him. She hit him again and he went 25 yards. First shot clipped the lungs and was certainly lethal. She beat herself up a little bit because he walked off, but i kept telling her over and over she did good.
Couldnt be more proud of how dedicated she has been last year and this year.
