The Clarion-Ledger reports that Bertha Vickers of Morgantown was having a tough season. She’d been seeing deer, but couldn’t close the deal.

But her luck changed a few days after her birthday.

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

She spotted a small doe. “I decided to wait for a bigger one,” Vickers said. “Before long, a bigger doe came out and I shot.

Bertha’s grandson skinned the deer, and she helped cut it up.

“When you’re as old as I am, you naturally think each one could be your last one, but I’m going to go as long as I can,” Vickers told the Clarion-Ledger. “I enjoy it. I love being outside.”

  1. Thats such an awesome story Bertha! My goal when I retire is to hunt as hard as I can for as long as I can. I always thought that hunting successfully into my 70s would be wonderful but now the sky is the limit! Great job!
