    The wife got her first deer today. Its not a huge buck or a long shot(220 yards) but she got one anyway. All started with dare from the daughter "mom there is no way you could shoot one like I do"
    Well guess she did.:)

    She will go again and had no problem making the shot
    She actually passed on several shots before things just not right
    other deer in the back ground brush obscuring the shot
    the cop questioning my buddy about guys shooting from the road(not us but we saw them drive off)
    then she picked her shot and made a preaty good hit It was alittle farther back from the shoulder than I would have prefered but 200 yards off shooting sticks at your first deer Ill take it
    Shes not dying to kill another but has no problem going again
    Just need to get her up into hells cayon at hunting camo having a few drinks and playing cards at night and shell will be really hooked
