I think when I inevitably hit the ripe old age of 104, I'll spend my days doing essentially what I do now. Bit of working, wishing I had some more cash, spending said cash on fast food and bottles of San Miguel, and waking up with little more than the stench of regret in the room.
What I probably wont be doing, is dillydallying around to get a hunting license so I can blow the face off a deer. But whatever floats your boat.
With that being said, let me introduce you to somebody. Her name is Florence Teeters and what floats her boat is killing animals. Bang bang.
Keep scrolling for more information.
Florence Teeters was born in 1915.Born at the beginning of WW1, Florence has certainly led a long life. She's gone through WW1 and WW2, as well as Winston Churchill's reign, the career and death of JFK, the moon landing, and so much more.
She was born in Wisconsin.And Florence has been a proud Wisconsonite her entire long and lengthy life.
She's got a big family too!It would appear that Florence takes the 'go big or go home' message pretttttty serious and she's the proud mother to five children with some grandkids too!
Florence only recently became interested in hunting.
She decided to give it a go herself.
She became the oldest hunter in Wisconsin.
via: WikimediaNot only the oldest hunter in Wisconsin, but the oldest hunter in Wisconsin HISTORY when she applied for her gun hunting license just days before the season began.
I'd definitely struggle.
But Florence was a total natural.I guess with age comes... well whatever, something good anyway. Wisdom? Inner strength? What I'm trying to say is Florence was real good at hunting and was wowing hunters even half her age with her skills.
She returned home with one kill.
Anyone born before 1973 is not required to take a hunter’s safety course, according to the DNR. Florence Teeters ma… https://t.co/qR1CEHjLfy— Region 8 News (@Region 8 News)1575036001.0
Her youngest son spoke out about the hunting trip.Speaking to NBC15, Bill said:
I took mom out to the blind this year. I had a nice chair for her and it was nice and warm. A little after 4pm, a buck shows up about 30 yards away. I tapped her on the knee and I pointed. She nodded and smiled and was real quiet. Then she took the shot!
She wanted to go hunting because she wanted to experience the part of being out in the stand with the boys. She likes the idea of being out in the woods.
It's likely to be the first of many.
More specifically the post read:
Florence Teeters is 100% that deer hunter. This mother of five got her first buck on her first hunting trip ever this year. Did we mention she’s 104-years-old? But who’s counting – She sure isn’t. And yep, DNR confirms Florence Teeters is the oldest person to date to purchase a gun deer license and harvest a deer.
