HUNTING WITH KIDS – Camaraderie and Life Lessons

by James Esperti, Partner, Fay Ranches

Adsc_0020s much as you can love hunting, nothing beats the feeling of hunting with your kids.  The excitement that oozes out of every pore in their young bodies reminds you of some of your first hunts, when it seemed like it just meant more.  Be it following the tail of your bird dog anticipating a solid point, hunkering into a duck blind calling to working birds, or pursuing a wise old bull elk or mature white-tailed buck, the enthusiasm from a young hunter is the reward in itself.

Passing the torch to my boys is very important to me, especially in this day and age with an exploding population and so much anti-hunting sentiment in the media.
