Story: Taylor hunted the youth season and we practiced all summer shooting her new slug gun. Taylor loves to shoot and I explained to her that if we were to go deer hunting, we have to make sure to make a clean shot on any animal for a humane harvest. Taylor got very proficient with her slug gun and dropped this buck our second morning at 60 yards! The buck never moved and just dropped to the ground. We high-fived each other for a few minutes and then got down out of the tree to get her first buck of her life. It was an awesome hunt!
