Take a kid hunting. Trust me, we never forget it.

Published by: Pro Staff, Rusty Creasey, 10/24/2019 9:48 am

Looking back now, I vividly remember my early hunting trips. My uncle, Harvey Shue, and my brother, Mike, always made sure to include me any time it was possible. I can remember wearing hip boots and having to get piggy-back rides across deep sloughs and ditches. They’d always sit me on a dog stand or find me a shallow spot to stand. I remember the smell of my uncle’s cigar and the sound of their calling. I’m so thankful to have had such great men to learn from.

If you are an outdoorsman or sportsman in the south, no event heralds the coming of the fall season like the opening day of dove season. While technically, it opens in the late summer, it is considered the herald of fall and is a coveted, revered and venerated date among southern hunting traditionalists. And there is nothing more traditional than the opening day of dove season for those that hunt them.
