RAEANNE ISAACS, RIFLE CATEGORY WINNER
RaeAnne is a 10-year-old from Renovo, PA. She harvested this 10-point buck, with a 20-inch spread this year in the Kettle Creek area of Clinton County on the second day of the 2018 firearms deer season. This was RaeAnne’s FIRST buck and her first year in the woods!
She went out during archery season with her dad and didn’t have much luck, but that didn’t stop her once the firearms season opened. The first day wasn’t easy with all the rain, but she got back out with her dad on the second day to try again. At 8:30 a.m. she dropped this buck with one shot from her new .243 Mossberg rifle. The smile on her face really says it all.
TEJA HAGETER. ARCHERY CATEGORY WINNER
Teja is a 15-year-old from Rimersburg, PA. She’s pictured here with her 14-point buck, which was harvested in Clarion County on Sept. 29, 2018.
This is Teja’s third buck with a bow in three years! We wish her continued luck in upcoming archery seasons.
