    I just have to share this with you. I work in a Medical Office, & we always have drug company reps coming by, & alot of the time, they bring us lunch. So, they're all pretty familiar with the fact that I hunt. Well...most of the women reps are these "pretty little petite cutesy" things.(No offense intended here.) The other day, one of the women came by & "just had to tell me" that she'd killed her first deer, a big doe! She was so proud, & excited! She said, "I have to tell you, I've always hated hunters. But I went with some friends, learned how to shoot a gun & went to Mississippi with them to hunt. The first day was cold, rainy, miserable! I asked them, is this what y'all enjoy?? The second day, right at dusk, a big doe walks out----and, I don't know what came over me! I was suddenly a hunter!" Get this; 1 shot--218yrds! With a 45/70! She said she did shed a tear when she saw the doe up close. I told her that's okay; I've done that before. But, at the same time, she looked at my picture & said, "Now I want one with horns!" I'm so proud of her!! And to know that we've recruited another hunter to our ranks.
    Sorry the post is sooo long, but I just had to tell y'all!!!!

    Rox, my momma taught me to hunt and fish, daddy was to busy workin and thats understandable. She was very proficient in the outdoors.

    That was a good story. It is always good to have another hunter among us. To me it doesn't matter if a new hunter is male or female, young or old. I am just glad that they are on our side.

    She will not get over the Buck Fever until she has one on the wall. Congrats to her. That is a good story.
