Bristol Smith’s first buck

first buck

This is my 7-year-old daughter Bristol’s first buck! This little girl has been after one for 2 years! Last year she made a bad shot on a buck and we never found him. Fast forward to this year! During bow season she had multiple opportunities but hunting is just that, hunting. They never gave her a good shot and she wouldn’t take a bad shot again!

On Nov. 5, 2023, the whole family decided to go sit in the blind. It worked out perfect! This 7-point came out and ran some does around for a few minutes and decided to grab a bite to eat before he left! My daughter got behind my CVA muzzleloader and took advantage of his slip up!

We are beyond proud of this young lady and here’s to an addiction only us hunters understand!
