Griffeth bags first two deer

Whitley Griffeth, 8, Royston, killed her first two deer within the first hour of opening day Oct. 15 while hunting in Madison County with her father. The biggest, the 10-pointer on the right, was her first and green scored 137 3/8 gross. This deer was a buck her extended family had all been hunting for two years. His name was "Punk." “We had extensive history with him and numerous pictures of him, but Whitley was the first to encounter him in person and have a clear shot,” said Josh Griffeth, her father. “This hunt was also the first hunt I ever filmed. I will be making a YouTube video of the entire hunt and uploading it to our new YouTube Channel, "Chronicles of the Creeks.”

I'm sure this little girl is over the moon at her kills as her father sounds. However, I'm a bit old fashioned. I don't think a child this young should handle fire arms. I also question the lack of a safety vest.
