Hunting adventures in Sabetha




As promised I told you I would tell you about my first hunting trip. Well my second really, I went when I was in high school with my Dad and I was bored out of my mind!! This time it was a bit more fun and I think I might go again for sure.

So here is how it works. Because there are not too many birds to hunt in Sabetha these days and my Dad has a lot of land to hunt on, he "plants" birds so that the boys can have something to kill. That is right, he buys these birds called Chuckers for 8 bones a piece and twirls them around by their legs to make them dizzy and then he puts them in the grass and runs away. My sister Callie and I helped my dad "plant" these chuckers.

One hour later all the boys went out with the bird dog and the dog found the bird, the dog points the bird, the dog scares the bird up into the sky, the boys shoot the bird dead. It is pretty crazy isn't it. I mean, how hard is that, you just let the dog do all the work and you wait to kill something. It was a great time with the boys and my main man Brett did a great job!! Here are pictures for your enjoyment ;)
