Sally exemplifies what hunting is truly about, and the emotion she shows is guaranteed to give you goose bumps.
We all remember our first deer: that feeling of elation, raw emotion, and most certainly gratitude. Those memories are destined to stay with us forever. And no matter how many deer we shoot, there’ll never be another “first.”
At age 86, Sally had yet to shoot a mule deer. But as the old adage goes, it’s better late than never. This video simply warms the heart, showing the raw emotion of a lady (who has a pretty incredible shot, I should add) putting a check mark beside one of the items on her bucket list.
Ready yourself for some goose bumps:
Did watching that bring back a flood of memories for you? What an incredible moment that captures the true spirit of hunting!
And when Sally speaks the following line, you instantly knew that her eighty-six year wait was worth it:
“What a day. Oh, what a day.”
Congrats on an incredible achievement, Sally. And thanks for reminding us why we hunt.
