Ron Lilly would have been proud on this day, when his oldest granddaughter killed a legal doe. "Any legal deer" was often his creed when hunting public land in WV and VA. Avery got up at 5am two mornings in a row, missed time she could have been playing with her cousins, and braved the cold to get this shot. She made a solid behind the shoulder shot at around 15 yards. She was excited to have deer meat to eat and to have successfully killed her second deer. Avery killed this deer on her great Granddads Vernon Haslacker's family farm, the very same farm he grew up in and his Dad before him off of Stormy Dam Road in Jordan Run Grant County, WV.
