This was my accomplishment on September 8, 2017. It was my first year with a tag and my awesome Dad called him in to 10 yards for me. I killed him with a single shot to the throat. I couldn’t be any more of a blessed 17-year old girl. It was the best hunt I’ve ever been on.

When I found the animal, all kinds of excitement and joy filled through me! Knowing it was my first year with a tag and only three hours into the hunt, I didn’t expect this to happen so fast. But I have spent the last few years and basically every day of my life preparing for it.

I live it, breathe it, and love it. It felt amazing! There are grown men and women who never get this opportunity and I was blessed enough to get it at 17 years old and with a bow. It was pure beauty. And I couldn’t have done it without my Dad! His aggressive bugles drew the bull right to me.
