Meghan Dolan, 15, of Minneapolis, above, spent her first six deer seasons sitting in a stand beside her father, Joe. A year ago, she took her first shot — missing on a buck. With redemption in mind and vowing not to shoot a doe, Meghan this year returned to the woods with her dad. Perched on a temporary stand in the Chippewa National Forest, she raised her .308 caliber Savage Lady Hunter when this buck strolled by about 4 p.m. on Veterans Day. She dropped it on the spot. “I have never seen her so happy and proud. … And I believe she is hooked for life,” Joe Dolan said.
