At 104 years young Florence Teeters decided that this was the year that she was finally going to take up deer hunting. After raising a family of hunters, Florence was inspired by her son to give it a try herself, but what’s more, she was actually successful.
On the very first day of gun deer season in Wisconsin, just two hours into her very first hunt, Florence was able to harvest a small spike buck. According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, she’s the oldest person to ever purchase a gun deer license and harvest a deer.
“This speaks to the adage that you should never underestimate the power of our senior citizens,” says DNR secretary Preston D. Cole. “After raising a family of hunters, this young lady chose this opportunity to partake in Wisconsin’s long-established tradition of deer hunting.”
