MOUNT WASHINGTON - When Casey Porter of Mount Washington set out on a hunting trip to eastern Kentucky with her father and brother, she was apprehensive.
The 11-year-old had never hunted big game, but she made up her mind to do her best and enjoy the experience.
Not long after the Porters arrived in Perry County in mid-December, Casey harvested an elk weighing between 500 and 600 pounds from about 160 yards away.
“It was awesome,” Casey said. “When I was successful in taking my cow, I was very happyee my daddy hugged me really hard.”
