Plenty of hunters were successful during the first weekend of gun deer season, even those who haven't been doing it for long.
Some people wait all their lives to score a buck, but Brynia Geiger didn't have to wait long.
"I was shaking when I saw the buck coming, because I was cold and I was nervous," said Geiger.
Brynia is just 10 years old. On her first attempt being able to shoot a gun while hunting, she bagged an eight-pointer.
"I thought I was going to miss," said Geiger.
"The last two years I’ve taken her out on opening day with me. And both years I’ve shot a buck with her," said Brynia's father, Douglas Geiger.
For the Geiger's, hunting is a family affair.
"My grandpa and my dad and my brother do, we just hunt on the farm with uncles and cousins," said Douglas Geiger.
Brynia and her father say they were hunting less than a mile away from their home in Dorchester.
"As the doe was walking through, I had asked her 'you want to shoot it?' And she said 'no, let's just wait,'" said Douglas Geiger.
To say Brynia was nervous, might have been an understatement.
"I thought I was going to miss and then it was going to run away," said Geiger.
Now, with her first buck in the books, Brynia is already doing some bragging.
"I brought pictures to school and the boys were impressed. They were talking about, they went hunting that weekend," said Geiger.
She says she plans to get the buck mounted, right next to her father's prized possessions.
"It was very exciting for me to see. For her to make a good shot on the deer. And to watch her expression," said Geiger.
Brynia and her father say they'll be back out hunting again later this week.
