101-year-old woman, avid deer hunter, bags 2 with 1 shot

MORGANTOWN, Miss. (AP) — A 101-year-old hunter in Mississippi is still at it and even dropped two deer with one shot.

The Clarion-Ledger reports veteran hunter Bertha Vickers made the twofer during her first successful hunt at age 101. She says getting two in one a few days after her Jan. 9 birthday was a complete accident. She fired at one and got a surprise.

She says, “Then I saw two deer on the ground. It shot plum through both of them.”

Vickers says she got the two-in-one after missing four deer this season. She says she helped clean the animals and shared the meat with her family.

Vickers says, “I made steaks, but I gave most of it to my grandchildren.”
