MISHAWAKA, IN (CNN) - A 6-year-old girl shot and killed her first deer on the opening day of deer hunting season in Indiana.

Grace Peregrine Zerbel loves princesses and the color pink, but she also enjoys hunting with her dad.

"Daddy took me turkey hunting and he got a turkey and he called it mine, but this is really mine because I shot it," Grace said. "He shot the turkey. I shot the deer."

Her father, Tim Zerbel, said he has to hold the gun for Grace because she's so small. "She kind of sights down it and then when it's ready we check and double check and pull the trigger," said Zerbel.

Grace and her dad were among hundreds of outdoorsmen out for the start of deer hunting season.

Grace bagged a six-point buck on opening day.
