My nephew and I took our last hare hunting trip of the winter today and had a great time. We managed 7 between the two of us, and must have passed up another 7 on the way back to the truck since we decided we had enough. Spectacular weather, plentiful hares, and a good time all around. To make it even better, he had just signed up for his hunter ed course this morning, so we spent the entire drive talking about the regs, meat care, tracking animals, and all sorts of other things. He learned how to look up the seasons and limits by area, how to tell a young bull from a cow caribou, etc. etc. It was a very good day.
Here's the young hunter with #7. He surprised me with a shot as I was looking the other way. I didn't even see the hare before he took it. I'm a proud uncle today.
