Bea Leach has no idea why she enjoys deer hunting, but at 76 years old the Macomb County grandmother always is ready for firearms season.
Leach tells the Times Herald in Port Huron that on opening day she took her second deer – a five-point buck.
The Richmond resident said that as a child she watched her father take target practice.
Leach hunts from a shack at the rear of her property about 35 miles northeast of Detroit. She took her deer about 15 minutes after her son shot an eight-point buck on Nov. 15. Her 14-year-old grandson also took a deer this year.
Zachary Leach said it’s “cool” that his grandmother hunts because “you don’t really hear or see any grandmas that are 76 and still shooting deer.”
