The Thompson family has a real love affair with hunting. Make that successful hunting.

Megan Thompson, 13, of Brooks recently completed the coveted “grand slam” of hunting, following in the successful footsteps of her brother, Dylan, in 2010.

Thompson started her hunting season in the spring in Waldo County when she took a 20.81-pound turkey, which had one-inch spurs and 8.5-inch beard.

She then took her hunting adventure to Aroostook County where she successfully bagged a 180-pound bear in September.

In November, she filled her permit with a 600-pound moose taken the first morning of the hunting season.

The youngster finished her hunting season — and completed her grand slam — back in Waldo County when she took a three-point, 110-pound buck in November.
