Elderly Woman Bags Deer Days Before Her 100th Birthday
Bertha Vickers will turn 100-years-old on January 10th and just a few days ago she got a deer kill on a hunting trip. To her it was just another day.
"I don't know why everybody is making such a big deal about it," she told the Clarion Ledger. "If I'd killed a big buck I could see it, but it was just a doe."
