My 17 yearold daughter drew first blood Sat. & second blood today, Sunday!
Saturday was opening day of our modern gun deer season and my 17 year old daughter drew first blood. 2 little deer, 50 pounds dresssed weight, came out and she drilled one. Would not let pappy or her brothers shoot because she knew this little doe was "tender eating" according to her. I reckon she gets to be one up on us boys this year. She hunts for meat, if a big buck had walked past she would have had one of us shoot it because all she wants is tender young meat. My girl was raised right! Now we boys have to get our buts in gear. She killed it at 150+ yards by the way with her custom 243 mauser. The deer went a whole 2 feet after she hit it!
Well tonight, 11/14, she shot a 8 point buck at 100 yards while I MISSED a doe at 100 yards! No living with her now!!! The boys had to drag it out all the time she was rubbing it in their and my face! My rifle is zeroed in at 200 yards so I shot over the doe but her 243 dropped the 8 pointer dead in it's tracks. It did not move a muscle. She drilled the heart, lungs, and part of the liver. Only thing I can figure is that the 243 bounced around inside the chest cavity because there was no exit hole. She wants to take off from school tomorrow to fill her bonus doe tags now! The boys are pouting like 2 little 2 year olds (so is daddy)!
I will post pics of both deer tomorrow night. I am skinning them out tomorow and will take pics first.
I need to at least kill something tomorrow mourning to save some face. Her boyfriend is even upset being he has yet to shoot any deer! I will say this, I had a 243 barrel put on a CZ 24 action for her this year with a mid priced scope on it. That little custom gun has really suprised me and all I have in it is $150 to $175. Had to cut the stock down to a 12.5" pull being she is 5'6" and 115 soaking wet. Well worth the cost though IMHO and mainly in her opinion as well.
