My 9 year old daughter killed her first deer during the Indiana youth season. I have been teaching her to shoot since she was 4. It payed off with a one shot kill right through the heart of this spike at 80 yards with a T/C Omega. That memory will stand out the rest of my life. she is already counting down the days till November 16.

Congrats to you and your daughter.

What caliber?

EDIT: NVM, didn't realize the omega was a muzzle loader...

Wow congrats! I don't think little ones can start hunting until they are 10 here.

Love it, Congrats.

OMG she killed Bambi!...... Right on!

Not just the awesome shot and perfect kill but ... if you eat it she can smile and know that she provided some high-quality meat for the family.

Mounting the head?

still remember the first fish I caught. it was fun... then Dad started taking me fishing as much as possible.

Nice job dad....but did she field dress it? Shooting is the fun part. dragging that gutless animal back out is when the work starts.
Teach them young and teach them to survive on their own.

Very cool! She don't look anything like you at all!

Congrats! You've trained her well.

Just curious, but what did you start her out shooting? My son is begging to learn and I'm trying to find a good rifle to start with.

Thanks for the replies everyone, she says thank you as well. I can't wait till nov. to have her with me in the field again. might take her some during bow season.

The load was 100 grains Triple 7 pellets pushing a 250 grain T/C Shockwave.

We are getting it mounted.

She didn't gut it but did help with keeping it on its back for me. She pulled with everything she had while dragging. Not sure it helped much though, lol.

I started her out with a Cricket .22. Excellent beginner gun IMHO. Her and her sister have their own crickets. We shoot as often as we can. First thing I taught her was trigger discipline, and she is safer with firearms than a lot of adults I know. If I had it to do over I wouldn't change a thing.

That is absolutely fantastic. My daughter is only 2 1/2. I cannot wait for her to be able to do that!

Congrats to you both.
