KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Miss Kansas traded evening gowns for camouflage when she went out on a deer bow hunt this winter in southeast Kansas.
Theresa Vail joined a December hunt in the Pratt area organized by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, JB Outfitters and Realtree Outdoors, which taped the hunt for a television show.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1jg2AgM) Vail has been hunting since her dad introduced her to the sport when she was 10. She took part in the hunt to get a chance to shoot a trophy buck and shatter a stereotype.
The National Guard sergeant shot an 8-point buck in the final hour on the third day.
She was scheduled to be a featured speaker at the Hunter’s Expo in Overland Park, which ended Sunday.
