Young ladies first buck with a bow

    This particular young lady is a special story. She is growing up in a family which does not hunt and I kind of got the feeling her mother does not exactly take comfort in her daughters extra curricular activities. Despite this, MacKenzie harvested her first buck with a gun at the age of 14.

    Her stepfather on the other hand, who by the way was the one who contacted me about mounting this particular piece, seemed to be very supportive of her and was thankful that she was hunting instead of getting wrapped up in something, we'll just say a little less productive. He commented on what an achievement it was for a 16 year old girl to get a buck with a bow, and I could not agree more. He also commented that her mother told them if they had it mounted, it would not be allowed to hang in the house. Dad said, I support MacKenzie in this and I am having it mounted for her no matter what.
    I assured him he was not alone. I and all of us here also support her in her love for the hunt. I also would do the best I could to do a mount not only MacKenzie would be proud of but her mother might like as well, and she'd get it by X-mas.......and she did....

    That is great that he would support her love for hunting while her mom doesn't. Getting kids into the outdoors is awesome and Steve keep up the beautiful work she will remember that deer forever

    Those are the customers I love to get. I had one guy come in with his twelve year olds first buck to have mounted. The next day he calls up and says the wife says no way. He apologized and said she makes more money than he does and calls the shots on money. This just grinds on me no end so after a week I called him back and I said I'll do it for my cost because I feel this is such an important issue. I heard him ask his wife and she was screaming in the back ground.
    I just don't understand parents in this day and age not support there child in hunting even if they don't like it. The alternatives are drugs, drinking and maybe a pregnant teen age daughter.
    You fellas out there don't forget your girls in taking them hunting and fishing. You'll sleep better at night.
     
  14. very nice
     
  15. It's so sad that so many wives and mothers don't want anything that has anything to do with dead animals in the house. I am the complete opposite.

    I'm lucky my husband let me hang what I've hung up already. He's not really into it the process, but he seems to enjoy the finished product. That's really all I ask for.

    Awesome mount Mr. Klee, congrats to her, hopefully her Mom will come around now and accept it since it clearly means a lot to her
     
  18. That's a great story... And if anyone could do a superb mount, it is you Mr.Klee. I bet she had a smile from ear to ear!
