Amy is the exception to many high school age girls, she loves the outdoors and loves to hunt!

So far this year she has taken dove, squirrel and deer. After this past weekend, we can add rabbit to that list. I carried a camera and tried to do my best to get her in the right spot at the right time to bust a bunny. It proved a bit of a challenge, but in the end we pulled it off!

If interested, here are pics of her deer, squirrel and dove hunts.

Thats great, congrats to Amy! I am lucky to have one of those girls too. She turned 17 yesterday and is usually with me if I am in wood or on water.

P.S.
Those are some good looking beagle dogs!

Congrats, Amy! Is she gonna turkey hunt too? I know quite a few ladies that like it as much as the men do.

What kind of shotgun is she using? Is it a youth model? I bought my daughter a youth model Mossberg .410 pump but if she wants something bigger, I'd think about something similar to that cause I've always liked the looks of the double barrels.

Thx for the replies!

Yep, turkey is next on the list! We have had quite a bit of success filming turkey hunts as it is prob. the easiest hunt to film. We have already been practicing w/ a 12 ga. pump and 2 3/4" shells. She is ready for ole Mr. Tom.

The gun she is using on rabbits is the same she used for dove and squirrel. It is a 20 ga SxS. It is not a youth model, but I think she would do better w/ a youth model as she is not real big.

She shot the deer w/ a 257 Roberts. I had a range finder and the shot was 147 yards...and she hit the deer perfectly. She's more natural in the woods than many boy and even young men I've taken hunting.
