Good for her, especially at her age.

She and her family also use all parts of the animals so it does not go to waste.

Her luck changed a few days after birthday.

Vickers celebrated turning 101 and was back in her hunting blind, hoping for a chance to harvest a deer.

And this time, she was ready.

I'm kind of sorry to express this, because I like you, Suburban guy.

But I have to say, this picture is disturbing. It's disturbing to take photos of dead animals with their bloody tongues hanging out, as if we are insensitive conquerers. It's disturbing to take pictures of stringers of fish, as conquerers. I see it, and see it, and see it. Bloody animals, bloody fish on stringers, with smiling people, giggling people.

I get it. We're carnivores, as I am. I'm just disturbed to see dead animals and fish on stringers and smiling joyful proud conquerers.

IMHO, this will be the next generation's WHAT??? issue. Just as those of this generation can't understand slavery, and can't understand different water fountains and restrooms for blacks vs whites, and can't understand hating or killing gays, and wonder why in the world Germany turned their backs on Jews, I think the next generation won't understand giggling and bragging, and taking pictures with dead animals bloody and their tongues sticking out.

It just seems we need to be more respectful of the dead animals we've killed to eat. Enough giggling and bragging, and ignoring their painful deaths.

Wow. I've never heard of that happening before. I guess it has, but I've never read it.

She's in amazing shape for her age. She's not wearing glasses, either.

I agree with ClaraC, and why the hell is this in current events?

Oh Lord. Seriously? A lion or a giraffe...I agree is wrong. But this is a DEER. Hunting and killing animals for food is a completely natural thing. Donít make it into something it isnít.

Yup. Unless someone is a complete vegetarian they shouldn't take offense to this at all.

Does the Colonel (KFC) not display photos of his dead, battered chickens? I'm sure he's proud of what he's done too, and not the slightest bit guilty for feeding the masses from the slaughter.

Hunting wild animals properly is so much more humane than factory farms and slaughterhouses. She is proud to be able to feed her family and provide for them, I'm sure, not a bloodthirsty madwoman who thrills to the sight of blood. There is a huge, huge difference between some dentist grinning over a murdered lion and a person feeding their family or others.

I understand the moral stance on vegetarianism and veganism despite being an omnivore myself, but meat is meat, and only people with very big blinders on can think plastic-wrapped, packaged meat started out as something other than a dead, bloody animal. I've smiled and felt proud when my Thanksgiving turkey came out perfect last year.

Wonder what the bag limit is where she is, she could be in trouble if she is only allowed one deer.
