Today I took my 8 year old on his first upland hunt for pheasant and chukar. It was cold and blowing snow.....a great day to hunt. We went with my Dad and two good friends. My son Jared did great, shooting three pheasants and a chukar. More importantly his gun handling, shot choice and overall safety was great. He was a happy boy. Now the bad part, on the way back to the trucks, my buddy fell on some ice and broke his ankle! Bad way to end a perfect morning.
