Shooting, Fishing and More

The Missouri Department of Conservation and the National Wild Turkey Federation hosted a youth outdoor skills clinic that was an all-day event.  It was a great day and FREE to do plus it included lunch.  Jonah wanted to go, but Joshua did not.  Joshua and David went to play tennis and have time together while Jonah and I went to the outdoor skills clinic.


It was a fun time.  Jonah learned how to call turkey’s to a hunting blind.  He was given a mouth piece turkey call and has been practicing a lot!  He also shot a BB gun, 410 and 20 gauge.

He was given the chance to try trap shooting, but his shoulder was hurting quite a bit from the recoil on the 20 gauge (he didn’t hug into the gun and got the punch kick back).


He loved archery and now wants to do that in 4-H.


We also had our chance to catch fish at the pond.  In 40 minutes he caught two catfish and two bass.
