A PERFECT Daddy/Daughter Day (Pics)

My oldest daughter (Little Miss Big Sky) and I have been looking for a buck for her on and off all season. Last week I was out of town helping others get there deer, and I promised her that when I got back it would be all about her. We spent a couple days looking. Saw some good bucks and she even missed a tough shot on a pretty big buck right at last light. However it was 312 yards away and with the fading light it was not an easy shot. Had to try though. She was pretty upset about missing, but she got over it by the next morning. The next morning around 9 am this pretty buck stepped out, and she redeemed herself by making an absolutely perfect shot through the top of the heart and taking out one lung. He ran about 30 yards and fell over. The 7mm08 and my daughter strike again.

It was an absolutely perfect day all the way around. We had good weather, got to spend time together, and she was able to take a nice buck. It just doesn't get much better than this. I think the photo below says it all. Some days are just better than others, and this day was PERFECT! Take you kids hunting, it is very good for the soul.
