100 Year Old Woman Shoots and Bags Deer

Bertha Vickers of Morgantown, Mississippi started hunting during the Great Depression to help put food on the table and never stopped.

The newly turned centenarian was born in 1918 and celebrated her 100th this week only days after an image of her harvesting a doe from the Magnolia State’s woods went viral on social media.

“One of my neighbors invited me to come sit in a (shooting) house,” Vickers told the (Jackson) Clarion-Ledger of her two-day hunt, the first day of which left her empty-handed. On the second, she took a doe with a .243. News of Vickers’ whitetail success story quickly circled the internet, which left her puzzled.

“I don’t know why everybody is making such a big deal about it,” she said. “If I’d killed a big buck I could see it, but it was just a doe.”

The Oktibbeha County native recalled eating lots of quail during the Depression, but she switched to deer and turkey by the 1960s accompanied by her hunting partner husband who passed in 2000. She is reportedly still a fan of squirrel hunting whenever she isn’t cutting her own grass or working in her garden and looks forward to getting in some fishing once the weather warms up.

    Sad!

    • Donald Baker

      YOU are what is sad

    • Fred Marsico

      What do you find sad about this? Hunting your own food or growing some in your garden isn’t sad, it’s what independent people do.

    Hunting isn’t the issue. Our constitutional right to keep and bear being infringed upon by government IS the issue; the defence of a free people against tyrants in our government.
    Urah! MAGA

    If every law that the gun haters want passed the way they want them passed, how long will it take? To remove every gun off the street. To take every criminal in this country gun away. How many police officers will die as a result of trying to take what was a hard working LAW Abiding citizen’s guns away from him or her. How long will it take for this country to realize that it has made the biggest mistake ever?

    The American way. SELF sufficient, not a Big Brother providing. The constitution has been replaced with hand outs for votes. Glad we have a leadership team that is taking the Bull S by the horns and gutting the glut.
