Team Effort

     Proud mom Lisa Metheny of Terre Haute, Indiana, sent this photo of her "young'uns," who she's thrilled to see keeping the family tradition alive. Her daughter Mikayla (14) took this buck on opening day of gun season in Indiana. Big brother Travis (19) caught the whole thing on video. Lisa was only too happy to provide the details. -K.H.
     Mikayla shot this 9-point buck with a Traditions youth model 50 cal. muzzleloader. The buck should have been a 10-point, but it had a split broken off brow tine. He gross scored 164 5/8, was in full rut, and had a neck that measured 33 inches in diameter. Her brother Travis caught the entire hunt on video. He'd shot a Pope & Young buck from the very same stand, one week earlier, almost to the exact hour!

What a great tradition to get started and so much fun. The true family affair.

I think it's great that these kids get out in the field together. Way to support your sister Travis, I'm sure you two will have fun talking (and watching) about this for the rest of your life.
