My daughter shot her first deer during youth weekend. She dropped it in its tracks at 83 yards with a 1 ounce slug from a 12 gauge shotgun. The gun has a modified compression stock from Blackhawk tactical that reduces recoil by about 60%.

I was very impressed with her patience under pressure. She has shot over 600 rounds with her scoped .22 so I know how deadly accurate she is when things are normal. I was so proud to see that her accuracy was equally as impressive with her very first deer standing in front of her. She had to wait about 15-20 minutes for the deer to come into range and stand broadside. She nailed it with that one shot and double lunged it missing all the other organs. What an easy deer to clean!

72lb button buck.

I'm one proud papa! And she is one proud Hunter!

Congratulations to you both. Your daughter for a job well done and you for raising a future steward of the outdoors.

She sat in the blind right after the shot and started to tear up. I said "It's ok to be upset".

She said "Are you kidding me, I'm so happy. I just shot my first deer!"

She couldn't wait to get out of the blind and lay her hands on the deer. The smile you see in the picture was so genuine. She was smiling from ear to ear for a couple of hours.

She even did a little dance. You've got to love little girls versus little boys. Girls are so much more expressive.
