Conservation officials in Wisconsin last week advised that beginner’s luck was running strong with a 104-year-old first-time hunter.

Florence Teeters reportedly bagged her first buck this season on her land in Price County on the opening day of the state’s nine-day season, reported the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. She got the bit by the hunting bug after accompanying her son, Bill, last season as a non-hunter.

Bill switched places this year, with Florence behind the sights in the blind and two hours into her first hunt, she was greeted with a spike buck to harvest.

“She was so excited and saying, ‘I got a buck! I got a buck!'” Bill said.

According to state records, she is the oldest first-time hunter in DNR’s database.

“This speaks to the adage that you should never underestimate the power of our senior citizens,” said DNR Secretary-designee 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.”
