Youths bring in antlers for scoring

When the white-tailed deer bounded gracefully over a barbed wire fence about 200 yards ahead of her

When the white-tailed deer bounded gracefully over a barbed wire fence about 200 yards ahead of her, 16-year-old Rylee Mallo leveled the sights of her 7-mm rifle on the moving animal and pulled the trigger.

It fell about 15 yards from where it was shot, the carefully aimed bullet proving fatal.

Mallo, who was one of the youths in attendance at Rimbey’s Fish and Game antler scoring night held Dec. 11 at the Super 8, was pleased with her successful hunt.

“My mom and I knew he was out there,” said the plucky teen, who hails from Buck Lake.

Mallo has been hunting for three years and said she and her mom, Robyn, fill their freezer with wild game every year.

Fifteen-year-old Chelsie Fontaine, also from Buck Lake, brought down a mule deer this year using a .30-30 rifle.

“It is my first year of hunting and I was really surprised. I was out hunting with my stepdad and I got a rib shot.”

Eight mule deer, 10 white-tailed deer, two elk and one moose were brought in for measuring, said Daryl Hunt, Rimbey Fish and Game president.

“It was great, we had about 50 or 60 people present. They just visited and mingled among themselves. I was really pleased with the turnout and all the help we had.”

Hunt was especially pleased to see the youths participate.
