97-Year-Old Says She May Die With A Gun In Her Hand
WKRC ^ | 11/13/2012 | WKRC

There are certain things you expect to see in a 97-year-old woman's home and certain things you don't.

Katie Watson from Richfield, North Carolina is full of things you wouldn't figure.

She shot her first rabbit when she was 10 years old. To this day, she hunts quail and turkey but she's probably most proud of the fact that she's tagged 44 deer since she turned 80.

"How many men still hunt when they're 97?" she asks. If you wondered how she gets around in the woods, she takes an A.T.V.

Watson doesn't plan on slowing down any time soon.

"I'm a gonna be shootin' a gun till the day i die if i'm able," saud Watson.

Her nephew says it is an honor to know someone who has been hunting for her entire life.

I almost expected it to say she was a gang banger.

[Insert joke about arthritis and “real crip” gang sign.]

This is a frightened city. Over these houses, over these streets hangs a pall of fear. Fear of a new kind of violence which is terrorizing the city. Yes, gangs of old ladies attacking defenseless fit young men.

Every time I read about an intruder being shot in Texas, I read the article to see if it was my 86 year old aunt who did the shooting.

Dagums and I thought my "granny dynamite" was a nasty one, passed at 89 but she was a real good shot.

Guess I can't tell you all why we called her that, but this made me laugh good and hard and after the last week or so, i needed it, thanks for posting

Ugly to some (most maybe) but the Humpback is one heck of a good shotgun.
Fascinating history...Browning Auto-5

I'll always have a spot for them, its what my Father used when I was growing up and hunting with him. A Belgian model made in 1958. Beautiful shotgun.
