Nun bags huge buck

(WICU) A photo of a Pennsylvania nun and the trophy buck she bagged on the first day of Pennsylvania’s hunting season has gone viral.

Sister John Paul waited in her tree stand for three hours on Monday, the first day of deer season. As she waited, she prayed the rosary. Shortly after, a herd of doe arrived, followed by two large bucks. She shot the largest buck, a 10-point buck with a 16-inch spread.

She says she’s surprised by the more than one-million views the photo has racked up on Facebook.

“In St. Mary’s, this is what you do. You go hunting. Everybody goes hunting. The coach, myself, the students,” she said.
