Next time someone uses age as an excuse not to do something new… remember this story about a bad@ss 104-year-old grannie taking up hunting.
I’ve seen people 30 years her junior that struggle to get a spoon to their lips, but Florence Teeters — who was around BEFORE the first shots of WWI were fired, before Russia had a Soviet revolution, and before Shackleton’s expedition to the South Pole took up a new hobby.
As it happens, she’s pretty good at it. She came back with a buck on her first time out!
Florence Teeters, a 104-year-old Wisconsin woman, got her first hunting license this week then and nabbed a deer on her first time out.
Teeters vowed to hunt last year after she holed up with her son, Bill, in a hunting blind. The pair watched for deer together, but only Bill could take the shot.
The mother of five, who raised her children to be hunters, decided she wanted a buck of her own.
So, this week, she returned to the blind a licensed hunter. “Yes, it was her idea to get the license. And, yes, that was her first license,” her son told the Wisconsin DNR Bureau of Law Enforcement.
Spotting a buck some 90 feet away, her son pointed it out to her. Smiling, she took the shot. She made it count.
“I got a buck! I got a buck!”
She sure did. And landed herself in the record books in the process.
With her win, she became the oldest Wisconsin woman to get licensed and harvest a deer, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources said.
What does this tough broad do for fun when she’s not dropping a buck from a blind?
The usual things a woman her age might enjoy — riding on ziplines, partying at Mardi Gras every year… that sort of thing.
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
