Daughter's first deer

My 8 year old daughter was finally able to harvest her first deer. According to her it took forever. We sat for almost a week in the tree stand durring the bow season in TX waiting for a deer to come close enough for a good shot and walked away with lots of memories, but no deer. Rifle season came around and  she decided to take up the hunt with a gun. We saw 16 deer the first day lots of little bucks and doe's. The afternoon of the second day she had all but given up when this mature buck came out and gave her an oppertunity for a 75 yard broadside shot.
