GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTVO) — An Eighth-grader from Wisconsin killed both an 8-point buck and a 3-point buck with a single arrow.

According to WLUK, Matiah Christensen was hunting north of Sturgeon Bay in Door County when she took the shot.

“I did not think I got both of them at first,” said Christensen. “I was like in shock.”

She told reporters that she had actually passed up one of the deer when it went by initially.

“A 3-pointer walked out and we were like ‘OK, it’s a buck, but it’s really small,’” she said. “So, we waited for it to go by.”

An hour later, it returned with a few does and an 8-point buck.

“When I had it in aim, I shot and we didn’t know if I hit anything because they all ran in different directions,” said Christensen.

“There was a long blood trail so we figured it must have went through the eight-pointer and deflected off a rib and sliced the three-pointer’s neck,” said Christensen.

With only the one tag, Christensen decided to keep the 8-point buck, but the Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources allowed her to keep the 3-pointer’s antlers.
