With my self-imposed conclusion of the current upland season, I've been extremely jealous of those who are still chasing birds until the season closes next week. But that envy quickly turned to pride as I learned my 11 year old nephew, Ben, took his first wild rooster last weekend. Ben has been steadfast in the pursuit of his first rooster. The current conditions and bird populations have not made this quest any easier. In the end, Ben was not only able to take his first bird, he quickly followed his feet with the second bird of the day.
A day's brace
So here's to living vicariously through an eleven year old. His passion for the sport has made his family proud.
Congratulations Ben on your first of many birds to come!
