Raquel shows off her winning antlers at NRA's Great American Show.
- There were plenty of winners in NRA/Mason Dixon Big Buck Contest at Frederick Fair Grounds this January. Best in Show Sheds, Junior and more. But what caught my attention was the Female Best in Show. That was none other then Raquel Harrington of Maryland.
"It was my first hunt. Not of the season but of my life," Raquel said with a smile. "Yea, I'm a little bit spoiled."
An avid pistol target shooters, Raquel finally plunged into the hunting pond after some prodding by her Father and Uncle. In fact, it was her Uncle who served as wingman during this 2011 excursion on the family's Montgomery County Farm. Nothing like putting your money where your mouth is.
"It's kind of a funny story," Raquel explained. "It all started with a nap."
