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.
