You are blessed to have a daughter who hunts with you. I have two daughters, no sons, but the two girls grew up shooting and became successful deer hunters. Some of my best memories are of camping/deer hunts we have been on.

Great picture and nice buck. My oldest girl hunts with me and has a few good bucks to her credit. She usually shoots the 99 Savage in 300 that I gave her but borrowed my 336 in 35 Rem last time.

Congratulations guys! My 3 girls all like to shoot, but not interested in shooting anything yet. Maybe some day, youngest one said she would like to come hunting, just not shoot anything. Now the 4 boys, all like to hunt, 2 have gotten mule deer bucks, one didn't get to see one last year and one is 6 and can't wait. DP

Same for my twins. I like the focus women can bring to learning shooting/hunting. All of us "guys" KNOW we were "born" great shots & hunters; the girls just are eager to "learn", right? I have seen some dads sabotage their girls by making them field dress the thing...to what purpose? It's usually a turnoff, even for young boys. I tell folks that we need men for strength, leadership, etc, but we need girls for something beautiful, something gentle, something different than "us", even in the field!

I know my kids are raised in a different world than most. Born and raised on this cattle ranch in Wyo, they know where meat comes from and how it's done very early on. As far as gutting her deer, my girl didn't mind. She also helped butcher it.
Stormy can shoot a deer or elk, gut it, butcher it, cook it, and dress up and go win Homecoming Queen (true story). She's a good hand horse back and in the hay field, but still is very 'girlish' when she wants to be.

God love those girls. Mine are precious to me. One is salt and other is pepper. Still, I love them both. Wes, that Stormy is a cutie. Seems like Wyoming raises a lot of strong women! We need more strong women...Looks like Parson has one as well. Proud of all Dads. Steve.

Not a dad myself but I do know how you feel....you are all busting at the seams proud and rightly so..all very handsome young ladies!..I'm a doting uncle and am refinishing a 336W that I got reasonably from an abusive owner for my niece to give her on her sweet 16th...it will need to stay at my house because her mom is no firearms in the house type...no matter, ..it will be hers and she will be in the stand with me for her 1st bambi season...she is a crack shot with my 22Mag Marlin bolt gun and is a pure terror to the groundhogs and squirrels in my back acreage...she hinted she wants a rifle in pink camo but I think I'll save that for her sporting clays 20ga auto thats being given to her from her dad...think I'm going to need a couple extra safes if she gets bit by the Marlinitis bug too ::)

Tom,
You forgot one good trait - drives a truck or Jeep.

My wife doesn't wash cars but she bakes brownies while I wash her Jeep. I know some of you are describing daughters but it is great having my wife at deer camp. A hunting partner who smells nice, doesn't have a 3-day beard and keeps you warm at night is a heavenly gift. It's kinda cute when she shows a tear or two when we reach her downed deer too.

I have told this story before, but appropriate. When youngest daughter was in college, she wanted some dad time. We met at deer camp, about equal distance for each. We had several raised box stands large enough for two. Talked quietly about lots of stuff as we watched for game. Several shooter deer came along. Daughter finally said she could not shoot a deer. They had big brown eyes like Mom!. Turkeys came to a feeder about 120 yards away. She decided that she could shoot a turkey. I coached her to wait until a gobbler was sideways then shoot high in the back to keep her .308 (legal in Texas) from ruining the meat. Bang, flop. As we got down to retrieve her prize she said that she was not sure how she would feel about killing the turkey. We got to the spot, she looked at it and said, "nothing to it. They have beady eyes like a snake!" She did a good job as she only ruined one wing. First blood. Good day, Jack
