well,my boys aren't much for typing(texting is a different story lol) so i'll post the pics and tell the story!

well,my stepsons,when i met them 5 years ago,hadn't hardly shot more then a b.b. gun and were addicted to playstation and x-box,i had plans to change all that!
well,now we dont even own an xbox or playstation anymore,these boys are now confident,outgoing,friendly boys who are really liking this thing called hunting!

i put those boys on a 600 clay bird per boy per summer diet,hunter safety courses were only taken when i felt they would pass well,both scored 100% :D!
on my first effort at taking youths,david(the older) got 4 ducks,1 hen pinnie,1 hen mallard,1 drake black and a banded greenhead!
next season was daniels turn he got 5 ducks, all bwt!
last season the boys were with thier dad so i took 2 other youths from this forum out and each got a first,both dux and geese!
this season i had my two again and a friends daughter on her first duck hunt(allready had a goose)!
we got what we got to shoot at that day ending with 3 mallards and 2 woodies heres some pics

alana(the hunter) with her first duck, and missy!

today was the youth pheasant hunt,my boys first ever try for these upland birds!
through this site i met a fella named brian(spur),we offered each other a trade a hunt.him getting my boys shooting at pheasants over a dog,and me hopefully getting brian some hot goose smashing later in the season!
drove 1 hour 40 mintes this am walked for 3 hours and drove home with two happy boys and a VERY,VERY proud step-pa!

3 cockbirds and a hen,great dog work,and made a new friend!
brian,we worked hard today,and i appreciate your invitation to your sweet spot,and the time you set aside to make a memory for me and my boys,one we will not soon forget.
