14-year-old girl shoots rare BLACK WHITETAIL

Brooke Bateman was hunting with her father when she had an opportunity to get her first buck. I’m sure she didn’t expect it to be a rare all black deer. Her father said “She had not fired a rifle since missing a doe last year.” This deer was definitely a good chance to redeem herself. Around 4:30 that afternoon her dad gave her the okay to fire.

It was nerve-racking, but I knew I could do it,” Brooke said. “At first I was so excited that I couldn’t pull the trigger. Dad helped me calm down with deep breaths. I found the deer in the scope again, took a deep breath and shot. The deer fell over backwards. It was awesome. I love hunting with my dad.”

Congrats to Brooke for her rare and successful hunt.
