COLUMBIA CITY â€” A young girl shot two deer with one bullet Wednesday, a feat many hunters donâ€™t experience in a lifetime.
Kelly Schwenn of Etna-Troy Township walked into the woods with her rifle, and walked out of the woods with two does.
Schwenn and her mom, Wendy, have spent the season in a blind in a field west of Albion.
The eight-year-old Northern Heights Elementary School third-grader put down one game to engage another type of game; two in fact.
Kelly was playing her Nintendo DS, a handheld video game, when her mom tapped her on the shoulder to tell her there was a deer in sight.
The girl set the game aside, picked up her .44 rifle, and shot not one, but two does.
I was trying to hit both of them, and I did,â€ť Kelly said.
