Talk about getting bang for your buck.

A 101-year-old Mississippi woman managed to strike down two deer with one bullet during a recent hunting outing, the Clarion Ledger reported.


Bertha Vickers says she initially let one doe pass in hopes of a bigger deer showing up. When one did, she didn’t miss her shot.

“Then I saw two deer on the ground,” Vickers told the newspaper. “It shot plum through both of them. They both dropped right there. They didn’t take another step. I knew it was back there, but I didn’t realize it was that close to her where it could get shot.”

It’s the first time Vickers, who celebrated her 101st birthday earlier this month, has managed to bring down two deer with one shot, she said.

Another year, another deer. Go ahead, Miss Bertha!

It also marked the first time she’s hit a deer this season, as she missed on her first four attempts, according to the Clarion Ledger.

She told the newspaper that she’s going to continue hunting for “as long as I can.”

Vickers, who lives in Morgantown, said she celebrated her triumph by helping to clean the deer and gave much of the meat to her grandchildren, aside from keeping a few steaks for herself.
