Youth season was last weekend, and several area kids took advantage of the opportunity.
I do have to mention that turkey season opened up Monday for us older folks. I am looking forward to heading to my lease at Clayton to chase some gobblers around.
My good buddy Dan Carter is going to join me and Butch Parks for a little camping and hunting on Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully, I will have some pictures and stories next week.
Have a great week!
