A Beautiful Buck and A Beautiful Girl
My niece Kayli is one of those special people that is not only beautiful on the outside but on the inside as well. I have hunted for years with her grandfather and later her father. I like to think that I influenced her will to hunt. She has become quite the huntress and is starting to rack up an impressive list of trophies. She sent me this about her latest hunt along with the pictures and the following is as she wrote it.
I shot this 16 point on December 18 at L and L Adventures. It was super foggy all morning, we drove around and corned all the roads and saw lots of animals. I had my mind set on what I wanted my buck to look like so we kept driving and hunting. Finally when the fog started to clear we saw this buck come down from a hillside. We let him come in and settle down. Then I set up my shooting sticks and took a shot at 150 yards, hit him perfect in the shoulder and he ran about 60 yards. When I found him he ended up being a lot bigger than I thought he was! My biggest buck so far!
I think she was pretty excited.
Congrats on your magnificent buck Kayli. I am happy he was bigger than you thought as lots of mine through the years have suffered from ground shrinkage. Uncle Ed
