Boys wanted to try out some hunting skills, well at least the target practice part. After an interesting evening at Robert Wilde's place the boys got a great education on safety and what hunting is about.
The following Saturday we headed off to Steve Boyd's new acreage by Millarville. One of his son's was just getting back from a Bow hunting experience and told us all about it. We setup our skeet thrower and targets at the base of a hill to provide a safe backdrop for our practice. Sam seem to be having a great time sniffing and the odd coyote poked out until we started shooting at the skeet. the dog and wild life disappeared after that.
As we were finishing our day, Steve pulled up with his truck and a large Elk was in the back. He indicated he had a very successful outing. His group had bagged 3 deer and this elk. They did have a very large freezer.
