Day 2 of the Youth Hunt and Avrianna's hard work and patience pays off. She had 2 deer come into the stand, but only had a good shot at this one. I am so proud of her!! I wasn't sure how she would do .... as shooting an animal is alot different then shooting targets. Dan said she did fantastic! He was so impressed with how serious and attentive she took the hunting. She has been going up north for many weekends to get things ready for the hunt and she's been practicing diligently with her new gun, 7mm-08. She is very comfortable with shooting it and boy is she a great shot. 10 out of 12 shots at a target were all in the bullseye area.
YOU GO GIRL!!
We definitely have one VERY PROUD Dad here. For years it's been an Osero tradition to deer hunt, so for Dan to have one of his children take on the hunter roll...... IT'S AWESOME!!
Unfortunately the weather wasn't very cooperative as it rained ALOT, but she weathered the storm :) She was very enthusiastic to get out there to sit and wait, out every morning around 6:30am. At times she really would rather have gone back to sit in the warm comfy shack, but the anticipation of a deer possibly walking in kept her attention in the tree stand.
Sitting very patiently and quietly up in the tree stand.
There were 4 different kids at the shack with their dads and Avrianna was the only kid to have harvested an animal. Avrianna is the youngest female to harvest a deer at The Newwood ~ Hunting "shack". So Proud!!
