These are the types of stories we could use more of after this horrendous year.

Meet 80-year-old Virginia Luce from East Texas. Virginia is a grandmother, recently retired after 25 years as a registered nurse, and a FOUR time cancer survivor. She also happens to have one of the craziest hunting stories of the year.

She killed an 11-point buck FROM HER KITCHEN WINDOW in Houston County while making lunch for her and her husband.

“It’s a pretty good spot,” she told Dallas Morning News.

“My husband and I have hunted and fished together for our entire married life — 63 years. I usually kill a buck every year, but we don’t allow anyone to shoot the momma deer. The way I see it, if you leave the girls alone, the boys will come.”

The two keep some corn feeders on their property through Texas’ white-tail season, and Virginia always keeps a close eye on the visitors.

“I do all my hunting from the house now.”

“My kitchen is my deer stand. We take the screen off one of the windows every fall. I can see a pretty good ways from there.”

She’s a helluva shot.

“That .30-30 is a great brush gun for East Texas, but I like my .243 pretty good, too,” she told the news. What a boss.

Way to go, grandma. Lunch is served.
