2011 Youth Weekend

Postby NW_Vermont » Fri Sep 23, 2011 4:55 am

Good luck and just as important, good times, to all the youth hunters this weekend.

And a huge thank you to those who take out youths who wouldn't normally have the opportunity. Not youth weekend, but I will probably bring out a kid that is in a non-duck hunting family this season.

This weekend is important to us because my son will be hunting with a friend for the first time. This is friend's first duck hunt and his dad will be with us too.

I dunno who is more excited. Me or my kid.

Pretty slow morning, but some good chances......the weather just down right sucks.

Great to see kids getting out there. Numbers are not as important as memories and fun!
When people ask me what my favorite season in Vermont is, I simply reply. Duck

Our youth weekend had just as many smiles as HJF's daughter, but it was a real bust for ducks.

Despite setting up in a primo spot, there were very, very few birds. None were decoying. The boys had only a handful of passing shots.

I'd be kicking myself real hard, but this matched the reports of others in my area.
