TBT - First Gator with a Bow

Melissa is after her first of many alligators.

In this throwback we join young Melissa Bachman on her first evening out with her bow looking for gators. It was a dark, murky South Carolina night right out of a horror film. 

While most girls wouldn't dream of heading out on such a night, she had such a blast that gators quickly became one of her favorite prey. They present a tiny target which makes them among the most challenging kills there are in the outdoors.

Melissa would go on to taking them with her rifle, pistol and even a hook on later trips. It appears the gators have hooked her.
