Two things are exceptionally cool about this hunt. One is being there to assist your deer with her first deer. (Great photo too, by the way.) Two, I find it especially neat that you can let your child hunt at such a young age. What I wouldn't give to be able to let my kids hunt when I felt they were ready rather than the state mandated age of 12. My 10 year old daughter is my favorite hunting partner. She can out shoot all her brothers and a fair number of adults I know. She loves to hunt and be outdoors. It drives us both crazy that she still has to wait two years to hunt deer. Pretty much every week she gives me a count down until she's 12. Right now the count is 1 year, 2 months, and 3 weeks. Yeah, I'd say she's anxious. All that aside I think it's fantastic that you and your daughter were able to successfully get her first deer. Great job to both of you!

That is awesome! My daugher is two years old and my wife and I take her out to the range when ever possible. I have been looking at one of those cricket 22 single shot rifles to start her out with, I am just waiting for to show the ability to safely hold the rifle up where I do not think it will be dangerous.

Congradulation.

With respect, do you know where Qzilla and his daughter were hunting? If not, how could you possibly know what the laws are there?

That's got to be some kind of record! Youngest girl I've heard of taking a deer. You have your hands full and she's a cutie... Looks like that's somewhere in southtexas?

Hey, 47yds is long range when you are looking through those little eyes at your first deer..... Awesome!!
