My eight year old daughter is kinda scared of shooting a gun so I got her a Barnett RC-150 crossbow complete with red dot scope. I have never owned one and was a little unsure about it. Well, last friday we let her play hooky from school so I could take her on my day off. We set up a homemade leanto stand Thursday night (in the dark) on our lease where I took my doe earlier in the year. At 7am this little buck showed up and finally gave her a twenty yard shot. She hit it a little back and we had a chore finding it but finally did and had to finish it. She was excited but I think I may have been more. After the shot I started shaking as if I had just stuck one! It was awesome and now I have another little hunting buddy!

This is the bolt after the shot...


This is her with her little spike. Her first deer ever and with a crossbow to boot!

It don't get no better than that. Beautiful little girl you got there. I have a 19 month old son, and can't wait until he's old enough to plop down in the stand with the old man.

Tell here she's made alot of new friends here on the board! She has now become a AH.net hero! Great story with awesome pictures. My twins will be 7 this August, so hopefully next year they will be ready. Nothing like passing on the tradition.
