I took my daughter hunting with me once again, and once again it was as much an adventure for me as it was for her… Sometimes it takes a child to help us remember all of the little things that make the outdoor adventures so much fun… She was so excited to see hawks, egrets, and herons, that she remarked “Daddy, I forgot how many wonderful birds are out here!” I put her on the jerk-cord, and she immediately became more proficient than most of my adult cohorts at creating natural movement. She has been practicing on the widgeon whistle, and was quite thrilled when I told her she called in triplet gadwall that I ended up killing. Her fascination with the wildlife, and her interest in watching the dog work, and her interest in identifying all types of ducks made me remember what I really enjoy about the outdoors… Funny how I forgot. With two young ladies in tow (with the youngest coming up the line to hunt with me next year) I sure would love to see you ladies post up some of your adventures, and hear what it is you love about the outdoors.

But come on ladies… POST UP! .
