    It's so much nicer down here.

    If you posted those pics up in GNG everyone would be making comments about his daughter and not even notice the dead animals.


    rcprothero,

    Tell your daughter congratulations.

    And I agree with Noway, we want to hear the story of the hunt. Details man, juicy details!

    The boar was an early morning hunt. The buck just before dusk, cold and a wet day. Didn't stop her though. The round was a custom load. As she said it, she was nervous and a little shaky. Said she heard me in her head saying relax, breathe, hold it and squeeze slowly, let the shot surprise you. Well, she said it did and the buck dropped. One shot. Awesome. Looks great mounted. She's in business college now and said she can't wait to hang it on her first office wall.

    Quick story. She was in one of her classes and the professor was trying to make a point on situational awareness. She asked the class what you would do if you ran into a bear in the woods after analyzation. One said he would run. The next said no, you freeze. She came to my daughter and she said "well I hunt, so.....". The prof moved on, the class thought it was great!

    True story.

    Maybe you can tell I am a little proud of her.
