I took my daughter Alyssa up above Bishop to camp with friends and fish for some trout. We also stopped on the way and did a little bunny hunting since the season just opened up. Alyssa was my spotter and I shot three cotton tails in about five minutes of looking. After that we hiked a bit and took down a nice jack as well. Anxious to get moving, we got back in the truck and headed out after only 45 minutes of hunting.We arrived in camp around noon and started fishing after setting up camp. Alyssa did well on the trout and caught two the first day and five the second. We met up with friends and enjoyed good food, good company and many laughs. Alyssa was the only girl in a group of six boys ranging in age from 8 to 14 (she's ten and a half) and she outfished them all. Here's a few photos of an amazing trip.Me and Alyssa after a quick bunny hunt. Alyssa always like to pose with my little target 10/22...I shot all the rabbits.Posted ImageFirst cast at the lakePosted ImageMy little angel and her biggest troutPosted ImageUs at the lakePosted ImageThe fish.

Great job! I miss my youngest at the age of 10 when she wanted to be around us - especially hunting. She's 18 now and it's all about her friends....waiting for her early to mid 20's when she comes back to hunting with me!

Way to go Alyssa ,nice fish. And good work on the bunnies.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.
