Sister John Paul Bauer never went hunting as a child. But she learned to shoot while serving in the Navy and took up hunting after returning home to become a Catholic nun and teacher in St. Mary’s, Pennsylvania. She explains:
“In St. Marys, this is what you do. You go hunting. And everybody goes hunting. The coach, myself, the students.”
This season, after just a few hours in her deer stand on opening day, the Sister felled a ten-point buck. She laughs and says that there may have been some Divine Intervention on her behalf:

“I’ve always prayed the Rosary on the tree stand. That’s a tradition. You get up in the morning. You pray the rosary in the tree stand. So, I just think the Blessed Mother did smile upon me.”
