During a recent family trip to the country, the Arviat youth proved to have one of the most accurate shots they had seen among children her age, according to her uncle Joe Savikataaq Jr.
"They were all very shocked and amazed at Kadin." said Savikataaq, who accompanied Copland on the adventure along with the child's grandfather.
The trio spent nearly two weeks in the Zambezi valley stalking prey with help from an outfitter, two trackers and a government worker who monitored what they caught. By the end, Copland had bagged an impala, a waterbuck and a kudu while Savikataaq killed an elephant.
