104-year-old kills buck to become Wisconsin’s oldest hunter

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A 104-year-old woman has bagged a buck to become the oldest person in Wisconsin to ever harvest a deer.

The Department of Natural Resources says Florence Teeters of Phillips was inspired to purchase her first hunting license while sitting in a blind on her land in Price County with her son, Bill, during last year’s gun deer season.

She and Bill set up their blind on Saturday, opening day of the 2019 nine-day gun season. Two hours into their day they saw a spike buck. Florence took it down. Bill says she was excited and kept saying “I got a buck! I got a buck!”

DNR officials say a preliminary records check indicates Florence is the oldest person to date to purchase a gun deer license and harvest a deer.
