Every youth got many opportunities to see game birds in the wild. They saw the dogs work their hearts out and time after time, we watched the birds fly away safely as our hunting guide gave the "no shot" warning. Admittedly, the game we were after are beautiful creatures and we got to enjoy them in their natural habitat.
Yet each of the kids was successful and we enjoyed cleaning our birds and packaging them for each of the kids to take home to feed their families. The delight on their face was all-consuming as they told their families of their efforts and experiences. A great day in the field!
