From the Pioneer Press:
_Kelly Holmin, 12, is a seventh-grader in Nicollet, Minn., who loves playing the flute and volleyball and just plowed through the teen-lit “The It Girl” book series.
_”Definitely not a tomboy,” her father, Jeff, a taxidermist, said of his eldest daughter. “She’s kind of a girly girl who likes to wear makeup already.”
_A girly girl who shoots a Ruger Hawkeye rifle and just became the youngest Minnesotan to shoot a bull moose?
_Well, that’s Kelly Holmin, too. . . .
_With one shot, Kelly felled the moose with a 75-yard shot.
_”That’s when dad started jumping up and down saying, ‘You got him!’ ”
“She started crying, she was so happy,” Jeff said. When they climbed down the hillside, “she couldn’t believe how big he was,” Jeff added.
