Mairead had a Great hunt. After spooking on walking in, and then having a small fawn comin behind her as she watched the buck come across the field and wasn't comfortable taking the shot it entered the woods and stopped to feed on some nuts. she waited it stepped out from behind tree raised her head and bang! Deer went 40 yards. Her 1st deer ever and the 1st on the new property her dad bought adjacent to mine. ( was on the property by about 10 yards.. )
Used the same single shot 30/30 both her brothers took their 1st deer with after we had to ad a comb extension so her cheek would hit the stock properly. She got a nice 5pt. 10 in spread with a broken brow or would of been a 6pt.. Both g 2 were 3 in . Never saw her smile so much and loved to her her story at lunch. Her and her dad got it cut up and we were all able to make our friends wedding in the afternoon.
