A 104-year-old woman is now Wisconsin’s oldest deer hunter. Florence Teeters who was born in 1915 was able to harvest her first deer while hunting with her son during the state opening week of rifle season.
According to WSAW TV 7, Florence sat in the blind last year with her son Bill. And this year she said she wanted to get a license and hunt. So they got her a license and headed out.
“I took mom out to the blind this year. I had a nice chair for her and it was nice and warm. A little after 4 p.m., a buck shows up about 30 yards away. I tapped her on the knee and I pointed. She nodded and smiled and was real quiet. Then she took the shot!” said Bill.
Bill says she was super excited after making the kill and started yelling “I got a buck! I got a buck!”
Congratulations Florance on the awesome buck I could not be happier for you. This story just goes to show you it is never too late to start hunting.
