Harvest Hunters Participates in the Pope County Pheasant Restoration Youth Day
Katie, Maggie, and Epi participated in the Pope County Pheasant Restoration Youth Day. The kiddos had a blast throwing retrieves for the dogs and handling the dogs. They especially liked the live pigeons Katie brought for the demonstration. These kids are the future; Harvest Hunters was ecstatic to help encourage their growth in dog handling. Invest in the future!
