    Outstanding. Nothing like being with your child when they get their first deer.

    Are you going to bloody her up for her first deer initiation?
    Most of the dads in our hunt club bloodied their kids when they got their first deer. The kids all put up a real fuss .. but later they were all over the place showing their photo with blood on their cheeks proud as could be. They even brought the pics to school to show off their "blooding".

    Congrats to your daughter.

    Wonderful pic of the happy hunter! I hope it's the first of many for her.

    I have never heard of such a thing. My kids got bloody dressing their deer, not from some club ritual.

    Thanks for the replies and well wishes.
    This actually makes her 3rd deer that she has been able to harvest.
    All three have been one shot that was all that was needed.
    But her first Mule Deer.

    Good job! It's nice to see the younger generation getting out there and getting it done.

    I will be taking my daughter on her first deer hunt in a few weeks. Hopefully she will do as well as your daughter did.

    Congrats to her, and thanks to you, for bringing a next generation into our sport!

    Kudos to you both! I hope that 20 years from now, you're out hunting with grandchildren, and starting yet one more generation as hunters.

    My now 19-year-old daughter loves guns, and hunting! We have done well!!!
