Great Deer Hunts Begin with Doughnuts

November 15, 2014

When recounting that exciting day on Oct. 17, Hailey doesn’t immediately jump to the blood-pumping moment the deer came into view or that breathless moment when she settled in and took her shot. She starts at the beginning.
“We had to get up "really" early,” Hailey starts. “But, my dad had bought doughnuts for breakfast!”
