Normally i take youth season to take kids out and get them on some birds. Only thing better than the feeling of a successful hunt is watching these kids get fired up when things come together. My brother recently turned 16 so he was unable to hunt youth season so I took one of my younger sisters to sight in the shotguns. She was a little gun shy so hopefully next year when she turns 9 she will be ready. I ended up taking the neighbor kid who i had gotten a bird 2 years earlier. We hunted the first sunday of season and the rain didn't let up until 9 which kept us in the truck most of the morning. Finally we found a strutter with 5 hens that didn't end up liking the decoy so much. We found another bird about a half mile down the road in the exact same field he shot his first bird in. The hens came into the reaping decoy and even though the tom was nervous he came a little too close and got smacked at 45 yards!
