104 Year Old Woman Proves Your Never Too Old To Hunt
Florence Teeters is proving that there is no age limit to hunting or enjoying yourself. The 104-year-old decided it was high time she bag herself a buck.
“Mrs. Teeters, a mother of five, got the idea to get her first hunting license for this year’s gun deer season while sitting in the blind on her land in Price County with her son Bill during last year’s gun deer season.
“Yes, it was her idea to get the license. And, yes, that was her first license,” son Bill Teeters said. Make that mom’s first gun deer license – ever.
So, Mrs. Teeters got a lift to the Ball Petroleum gas station in Phillips to get that license. Wearing a sporty hunter-red plaid day-coat purchased by her daughter, Mrs. Teeters looked tip-top to take on the season. No one knew just how ready she was.
Two Wisconsin DNR conservation wardens – Joe Paul and Nick Hefter – were nearby and were thrilled to pose with the first-time buyer. “I thought it was fantastic,” Warden Paul said.
Little did they know, Mrs. Teeters was going to bag her first buck on the opening day of the 9-day gun deer season on her land in Price County.”
“Ecstatic, Florence screamed “I got a buck! I got a buck!” On her very first try, the elderly woman bagged a small “spike” buck with unbranched antlers, her son said.”

“DNR Secretary-designee Preston D. Cole echoed similar sentiments, praising Florence’s exciting accomplishment as an important reminder that “you should never underestimate the power of our senior citizens.”
“After raising a family of hunters, this young lady chose this opportunity to partake in Wisconsin’s long-established tradition of deer hunting,” Cole said. “We join the rest of Wisconsinites in celebrating her outstanding accomplishment.”
“On behalf of the DNR, we thank Mrs. Teeters for her participation in this year’s annual gun deer hunt and for helping keep Wisconsin’s hunting heritage alive,” he continued. “This proves that Wisconsin’s gun deer hunting season is for every generation.”
The DNR plans to investigate whether or not Florence is the oldest registered hunter in the Badger State to harvest a deer.
“I believe that’s the case,” Paul said.”
Good on her. I hope we all can be so lucky.
