Youth hunt smack down

Postby goosegunner12 » Mon Sep 24, 2012 12:37 pm

Well after 2 years now of the youth only weekend hunts i think it's right at the top of my favorites list. Nice weather, tons of birds willing to work, lots of first, and most importantly lots of smiles :smile: and memories to be made.

We had 3 kids out for the Columbia River Delta Waterfowl chapter youth hunt. We were covered up in birds all morning and the boys shot like seasoned veterans. They were all able to limit, mostly wigeon with a few pinnys and gadwall and 1 teal. One of the young men was on his first hunt ever. Another boy is starting his second year but was not able to harvest a bird last year, so it was his first birds and limit. Then Parker my son is starting his second season and after have an successful season last year started this year off with a limit and a banded drake pintail to boot. The bird was banded in Meota, Saskatchewan, Canada on 8/26/ 2010.

Nice work. My little guy just turned 9 and passed hunter Ed. I took him out as well. Third duck he shot was a banded mallard hen. He was pretty excited.

Dang your little guy is going to grow up to be a young Chad Belding or Jeff Foiles way to start him off early knowing the real reason for duck hunting....The Jewelry... :fingerhead: make sure he puts it on his lanyard. :no: :no:

Thanks. :thumbsup: The post was not meant for the original poster but more to the WA Duck whisperer. It is good to get the kids out but don't have to put two posts together on how great you and your kid is. Kinda surprised there wasn't a picture of a pile of birds and the band.

Wow, what a tool. Don't think anyone was saying how great some little guy was, just how much fun they had and got a lucky bird out of the bunch. Just made him that much more excited that day. He was ready for day two after the first was over. :huh: :huh:

That is so cool. I can't wait until my kids are old enough to begin the chase. I ask my son on a weekly basis, "when are you gonna grow big enough to come hunt ducks with me? Hurry up!" And his reply is always, "I'm trying dad, I have been eating all my food and mom says I'm growing!"

I bet it was fun calling in/online filing the band report with him. What's the info on her? I assume she's a local Suzie, but you never know?

He has been going out with me since about age 2. He has enjoyed it. The bird was a local one banded 8/25/2011 in Edison. It made it over a year before being harvested. I also attached a picture of him in the early days.
