This is what my buddy had to say about hunting with my daughter.

So, I had her get on the gun and look at the deer for minute. I asked her if she could see both deer and how was the picture. "It's perfect, I can see her perfect."
"Ok, let's take a couple deep breathes and just look at her for a second."
"Can you still see her and are the crosshairs where they need to be?"
"Yes, I can still see her perfect."
"Ok, I'm going to take the gun off safety and take the shot when you're ready."
A perfect textbook lung shot just behind the shoulder halfway up. I had her shoot again, but it wasn't required.
I could read the happiness and satisfaction on her face that the deer didn't suffer because of her excellent shots.
I gave her a big hug, some high fives and a couple fist bumps along with talking about the excellent exicutuion.
A HAPPY Day indeed for both of us!
Congrats again, and "Show me that pretty smile!"
