This boy got his hunting license and went hunting on opening day, September 1.  It was a big deal – he’s been waiting for years, and was finally able to take the hunter safety class over the summer.  And he got 79 out of 80 on the test.

Not bad for a boy who gets super stressed about test taking – yes, he was stressed about that test, to the point of throwing up, but he still aced it!

That dog we just brought home, well, he flushed the bird so the boy could shoot it.

Go figure!

By the way, the bird tasted really good!  It is a mountain grouse, in case you wanted to know.
