Jeff Pavlock loves his conservative life in Texas. He is a big fan of guns and firearms, as well as pickup trucks and other gas-guzzling vehicles. However, he is also a dedicated dad who wants to give his daughter as much experience in life as she goes through her childhood. But critics were quick to point out that Pavlock’s reason for pulling his daughter out of school was quite weak, which has turned this father’s social media activity into a viral trend.
Although Pavlock did not have to work, his daughter was scheduled to go to school. However, he decided to pull her out of school and make her miss out on her education because he wanted to take his twelve-year-old daughter with him when he went hunting in the wild.
When the school asked Pavlock why he needed to pull his daughter out of school early for the day, he did not lie about his reason. Instead, he told them all about how he wanted to teach his twelve-year-old girl to use a firearm and take the life of an animal during a hunting trip. As you can imagine, the school was not pleased with Pavlock because his daughter would be missing out on her education to go kill some animals with her father.
The father ultimately decided to share a snapshot of the sign-out sheet he filled out when he pulled his twelve-year-old little girl out of school for the day to go take her hunting.
“It’s deer season,” he wrote on the sheet. “Headed to go put the smackdown on a monster buck.”
In his Facebook post, the deer hunter thought his friends and followers would be happy to see that he was sacrificing his daughter’s education to teach her how to kill animals. He was surprised when people were very critical of the dad for taking his daughter hunting during school hours when he could have easily taken her out into the wild to hunt for deer on the weekend when school was out of session.
He captioned his Facebook post: “When you check your 12 yr old daughter out of school early, and everybody else writes down Dr appointments, but you right down the truth…priorities. Ain’t nobody got time for school!!!!”
The dad wanted to have fun with his daughter. Her education be damned!
“I’m always in a good mood, and I always want to make people smile,” he told KPRC. “I would always post a bunch of funny stuff on Facebook. I kept telling everybody: ‘One day, I’m going to make it big.’”
“I put down: ‘Headed to go put the smack down on a monster buck,’” the father added. “That’s the way we do it here in Texas.”
Soon his post went viral. And most people thought he was a bad dad.
“I’ve got people from Canada and people messaging me from all over the United States, so I am just living in the moment and enjoying it,” he said. “I just enjoy making people laugh. My wife is laughing. My whole family is laughing. We think it’s hilarious. I never thought in my life it would blow up on Facebook.”
