Yesterday (day before Christmas) was one of my most memorable days of hunting EVER. My thirteen year old daughter got her first animal, a huge Roosevelt cow elk here in SW Oregon. She practiced this summer and fall and made a perfect 190 yard shot with a .243, in fact it was the same rifle I shot my first big game animal with back in 1974 (40 years ago). My nephew was along and we made short work of it. It was truly a blessing from the Lord and so awesome to be with her to share that moment with her. She was so excited and was smiling from ear to ear. This morning we had elk tenderloin steaks, gravy and pancakes for Christmas breakfast.

One heck of a first animal. Way to get her out there hunting.

Good Job Young Lady!
Congrats to you and her Umpqua! Nothing like seeing your child with their first animal. I'm not sure who smiles more, them or us?
Awesome. Congrats to both of you on a great memory.
Congratulations, a day she will never forget. I remember when I took my son (he was 12) to Wyoming and he got his first big game animal. Memories like this will last a lifetime!
