Daughter scores a double...

i wasnt able to get my daughters Youth permit until tuesday mid morning..so after we purchase her permit we head to camp..we get settled into the camp at about 1230 or so and then head to my treestand that sits overlooking a thick nasty hollow..i should add this is her 2nd year hunting with me as last year she didnt get a chance to shoot...when we get into the stand she is bopping around and stuff making herself comfy and i didnt say a word to her...after about a hour she was bored and started playing her game...after about 20 mins i seen 2 doe's working thier way towards us and i got her up and ready to go...the doe's worked into 55 yards and layed down on the upper edge of the briars..i told her when 1 of them stand up to take the shot if she had a good broadside shot....i stood up and yelled and the little one stood up and presented her a perfect broad side shot and my daughter ask if she could shoot and i said yes but take your time..after about a minute(seemed like 30 mins) she squeezed the trigger of the remmy 870 loaded with the reduced recoil slugs and topped with a red dot scope and as i watch the trail of briars flying from the slug i seen the impact on the deer but coulnt tell where she had hit it...it did the jump kick and run about 20 yards towards us and piled up....my daughter looks at me and said"dad i hit her right in the armpit where we practised to shoot deer"...i gave her a big hug and the high 5's.we sat there for another 10 mins before we exited the stand.i went over and looked and she hit right where she said....so we load the deer on the 4 wheeler and back to camp we go only to unload the deer and get back to the stand..

We crawl back into the stand and i look at my watch to see its 345pm..as we get comfy again and my daughter whispering about her doe i happen to look down in the brush and see more deer comming...so i get her ready again and she says "dad theres a buck"..well it takes about 10 mins to get up to us..so i stop him and she cant find the body for a shot...deer walks about 10 yards and i stop it again only to find out she can only see the head...im shaking from excitement for her and the hole way this is happening for her first buck...then the deer walks out into the lower height briars at 73 yards and i ask her if she could see its body there and she replied "yes" so i grunted and stopped him once more..she ask if she could shoot again and i gave her the green light...she took aim and BOOM..as im watching the briars fly in the path of the slug once again in what seemed like slow motion..i seen the bucks side rumble again and it hit the ground..my daughter yelled"dad i got it dad i got it"...lol i laughed and calmed her down so she could keep from falling down the steps of the stand...she runs over and gets there before i do and yells "dad its a 6 point".needles to say i got a few tears of joy while sitting there with her and her buck....it was her first year with a gun that could mow the brush and im glad too...

needless to say im one proud dad...
