Illinois hunting and fishing

Here is a photo of Joe Woodruff, age 13,  Zach Fuelberth, age 14, and Augie Fuelberth, age 10, after a successful youth pheasant hunt at Mackinaw State Fish and Wildlife Area on Saturday, October 30, 2010. The boys got shots at 8 roosters and ended up getting three by the end of the day.  The picture shows the first two birds that Joe and Zach shot from a group of 5 that flushed at the end of a strip of standing corn.  Augie carried his gun unloaded to practice safe gun handling.  He did great and plans on shooting his first rooster next year.
