ROCHESTER – Skylar Pelletier got the birthday present she has been waiting for, thanks for a local nonprofit organization.
Skylar spent her 9th birthday in northern New Hampshire where she shot a large moose, organized by Hunt of a Lifetime, a nonprofit that provides fishing and hunting adventures for children with life-threatening illnesses.
Skylar’s hunt was successful – the 9-year-old shot a 772 pound moose and was able to take the rifle she used on the hunting trip home with her.
Her mother, Stephanie Pelletier, was so happy to watch her daughter able to do something she loves.
“Skylar’s an amazing kid and it was unforgettable experience for us both,” Stephanie told NH1 News. “She’s very deserving and I couldn’t be more proud of her.”
Skylar was born with a large hole in her heart and has a pacemaker to make sure her aorta does not become too narrow. The fourth-grader, who has already gone through five heart surgeries, has always wanted to go hunting.
Hunt of a Lifetime paired up with Skylar and brought her and her mother to Errol to hunt for her birthday moose.
Skylar’s next goal?
To get a deer – maybe that will be her 10th birthday present!
