Youth Hunt 2016

We hosted the youth hunt for the 10th year at Sioux River Wildlife today.. We had 16 hunters and ended up splitting them in 2 groups …they ended up with 13 birds total and many lessons learned ..After 15 yrs years of doing the youth hunts, they will always remain my favorite hunt of the yr… I feel blessed to be a part of so many first memories of hunting for these kids…especially their first Pheasant shot… I love being able to teach these kids n help pass on this great American tradition we call hunting …I was also honored to be able to knight 5 kids as South Dakota pheasant hunters with the taking of their first bird… I have said before when we are dead n gone it is our memory that lives on is these memories that make me a wealthy soul –Words from our guide, Robbie Thompson.
