Michael, a veteran, and his 11-year-old daughter were in hunting blind before the crack of dawn. Harlynn brought her great-grandpa’s rifle, who coincidently was also a veteran. It wasn’t long after daylight they saw two does only 30 yards off to their right in a food plot. Michael set the Savage .243 rifle on the ledge. Harlynn looked down the scope, focused on the bigger of the two, and gently pulled the trigger. The doe hunched up and bolted off into the woods.
Michael said, “Her jaw dropped with excitement. I was so proud of her and gave her a big hug and a high five!”
They waited a while then started looking for a blood trail. Harlynn spotted the doe first and, with a big smile, yelled, “There it is!!”
Many thanks to the Ken Olson family for sponsoring the hunt. Congratulations to Harlynn on her nice doe and the treasured memories shared in the blind with her dad. God bless!
