For consecutive years, two sisters from the North Side's Observatory Hill have shown the guys how it's done, and this year they brought in their 10-year-old cousin.
Samantha Morgan, 17, dropped her sixth buck, an eight point, in its tracks using a .30-06. Her sister Mekenzie Saban, 15, hunting with her step-father Kevin Morgan, downed her fourth buck with one shot from a .270. Samantha Stromberg, hunting with her step-dad Tim Morgan under the state's Mentored Youth program, took her first deer, a half-rack spike, using a .243. The deer were shot in Venango County near Polk.
