I took my boys ages 9 and 10 years old for the jr. pheasant hunter with the Southern Tulare Sportsmen Club yesterday. Amazingly my youngest was the only one that like to hunt and the oldest just want to tag along. He bagged 2 (2 was the limit). The first year we borrowed a friend shotgun (single shot 20 guage) and shot his very first pheasant. He ended up wining a drawing for a free youth 870 shotgun! I was one proud dad! This year we got invited again for junior hunt. Again, with the 870 with a little modification he bagged 2 big pheasants! At the end of the hunt, they would have lunch ready at the club house and we waited to see who would win the drawing for the shotgun. I didn't know that my son enter for drawing again, out of 50+ kids they drew out his name and starting reading his first name and I was begging them not reading our last name! Well, they did! Another 870 youth model is going home with us after the 10 days waiting period. I told the group that I was proud dad last year, this year I am embarrass! Next year, we are going to hunt there again and hope that they wouldn't draw his name. The Southern Tulare Sportmen Club are great with kids and they had wheel chair hunt the day before junior hunt.
