Mentored Youth Program pays off!

Humbled at nine

This past year O.D.F.W created a program that allows youth between the age of nine and twelve to shadow a registered adult hunter. My son Michael has been aching to join his dad in the ritual yearly event of hunting food for our family. Although he was legal to shoot the animal he allowed his dad to do it while patiently watching and learning the safety rules of hunting. Michael heped field dress the bird with his dad and also helped mom prepare it for the table. Michael is excited to excel in his hunting hobby this year thanks to O.D.F.W and his father.
