Duck hunting in her blood
The fact that Lauren Thomas, 26, is a duck hunter should come as no surprise.
It’s in her blood, as Brian Brueggemann writes in an article in today’s Belleville News-Democrat.
“I was born Dec. 28, and my mom was still hunting at the end of November. She was out there every day in the duck boat,” Thomas said.
Before long, Thomas was scurrying around in the duck boat with her parents, Jim and Lynn Thomas, of rural Carlyle.
“I wasn’t allowed to go out in the boat until I was 2,” she said. “They finally got clothes that were warm enough for me.”
