Hold onto your hunting hats. Here is a deer hunting story that is hard to beat. Young Marissa Webb of Crossville took two does on the last day of the Youth Deer Hunt, the very last day of the season (Jan. 15). It gets better. This little 10-year-old did it with only one shot.

Marissa was trying for her first deer and she and her father Scotty were invited to a farm in Van Buren County. They were situated in a shooting house near an attractive field for deer. Marissa was hoping for a buck, but after a while decided to take one of the many does they had seen.

Equipped with a Marlin .30-30 caliber lever-action with a scope, Marissa followed her dad's advice and picked out the biggest doe in a group about 150 yards away. Immediately after her shot, they watched as two deer fell, one right behind the other.

Luckily, Van Buren County is in Unit A and the bag limit for this hunt is one antlered and two antlerless deer. Marissa's hunting career is off to a great start.

I once shot two bison at 800 yards with one 22lr bullet.

I could see that happening here. And the AFGC saying BOHICA! and then promptly raping you.

I had to pass up a shot on a bull moose once because a cow was behind it. A .375 will go straight through at 500 yards, let alone 50.

I think he would just roundhouse-kick the bullet out of the way.

As much as I enjoy hearing about young hunters entering the sport, this should be a teaching point about making sure of your back-stop (no, a back-stop is not another game animal!). She's very lucky that the second deer wasn't wounded.

Agreed. For every time we hear a story like this, some guy has one he is not telling about the second deer being crippled and lost.

Bullet bounced off one and hit another?

This is the kind of hunting that Rosie O'Donnel wants, a controlled environment where you pick up guns and shoot animals that are released.
