    My daughter ,Katelyn just passed the New Mexico Hunters Safety program. Two long days of videos and questions,Yesterday from 9 am til 7 pm and today from 9 am till 3 pm . She got 100% on theprofiency test and a 98% on the written ,if she had got a 100 on the written she could have been entered into a drawing for an elk hunt for next fall. but she said i dont want to hunt elk anyway i just want to hunt deer an birds with you.

    You seem well versed in the ways of the wild. Experience is a good teacher. I am sure she knows how lucky she has it. Teach her everything and do it well. Very few people can say they have that chance at experience nowadays. When you can't do it anymore or are not around to do it, your legacy to her will continue long after and for perhaps many purposes. John.

    Teach her well ya old Duck. Tried to rep ya and it told me to get bent. Will catch ya another time.

    It's nice seeing girls getting into the sport of hunting. I've been trying to get my wife interested but I think she'd rather make pets out of game animals. She doesn't mind eating them, she'd just like someone else to kill them for her. LOL

    Richard tell that gal congratulations for me.

    I get a kick out of seeing the looks on kids faces when they find that they have actually passed the course. What is even better is when a parent takes the course at the same time their kid does. That's when I make the statement...Parents remember your kids are going to try and beat your score and if they do they will never let you live it down. lol

    This course is not just for kids it's for everyone. A lot of the Wildlife Reserves require everyone to have passed this course before they are allowed to access the Reserve no matter what your age is.

    Ames Plantation where the National Dog Trials are held is one of these places. A few years back the owner of one of the dogs competing was not allowed to partisipate because he hadn't been through the course. Luckily he was allowed to have another person handle his dog so that it could compete.
    All the owner could do was just sit on the side line as a visiter.

    You're a good man Richard, keep it up. Don't know if this is the case with you, but I've had three daughters and two granddaughters, no sons. One daughter and one granddaughter loves the outdoors like me but they won't hunt. The granddaughter does like to fish though.
