Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter Maddie, 10, is getting ready for dove season.
Maddie was holding a shotgun in a new photo posted to Instagram on Sunday by Jamie Lynn’s husband Jamie Watson. In the snap, the youngster is rocking gym shorts, a T-shirt and ear plugs and is holding a shotgun nearly the size of her body. Watson captioned the snap, “Getting her ready for dove season.”
The picture definitely got mixed reactions from fans. While some commended the stepfather for showing his daughter how to use a gun, appreciate hunting season and get outdoors, others were not so friendly.
“How is teaching a kid to kill majestic creatures a “good thing”?!,” one commenter wrote.
“Bad parents,” another user added.
Hunting doves in Louisiana, where the couple lives with their two children, is legal and at age 16 residents can even obtain their own license.
This isn’t the first time Maddie has made headlines. In February 2017, Maddie was involved in an ATV accident at the family farm that left her unconscious for two days. Jamie Lynn reflected on the horrible accident in a post one month after it happened last year.

A month ago, at this time, I was living a mothers/anyones worst nightmare happening right infront of my eyes, helplessly….Fastforward- Today, we were able to celebrate the baptism of our sweet Kylie Blair. I'm not one to preach, but we were shown God's grace, and we still feel undeserving of His mercy. I'll never stop thanking each of you for your prayers, because we recognize the miracle it created. We are beyond blessed, and we will NEVER forget y'all, and God's unbelievable mercy ❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻 #Godisgood
Jamie and Jamie Lynn are also parents to 3-month-old daughter, Ivey Joan.
