Hunting season has opened and young hunters surprise me every year with their big kills.  They know the “dos and don’ts” of using a gun which is a good thing.  Parents and grandparents take time with their children and this is something that they pass on for many years.  So keep those photos coming to me and I will keep on sending them in for others to see.
