If you live in certain parts of our great big country, it's not unusual to see hunters showing off their latest kills on social media.

But people were a little more impressed to see Bertha Vickers proudly standing in front of her doe on Facebook. Vickers, who turned 100 this month, defies a lot of stereotypes that people may have about hunters. The centenarian bagged the deer a few weeks ago just miles from her home.

Vickers, like most 100-year-olds, isn't on Facebook. But her relatives insisted on sharing a photo of her posing with the animal on social media, and the kudos and birthday wishes started pouring in.

“I don't know why everybody is making such a big deal about it," Vickers said. "If I'd killed a big buck I could see it, but it was just a doe.”

Despite her modesty, Vickers is probably the oldest huntress (and fisherwoman) in America.

It all comes naturally to Vickers, who says she grew up in a small farming community, and married her husband in the midst of the Great Depression.

She also revealed what's next on her bucket list.
