It was a beautiful sunny day with no wind. A perfect day to be outdoors! Most of the participants were new to trapshooting and bird hunting. We started out with the fundamentals of shooting a shotgun, hitting a flying target, and the safety issues in the field with pointing and flushing dogs. Then it was time for a great lunch at the Bluffs Lodge. After lunch we split up into two groups and the guides used two dogs for each group. We walked the meadows and grasslands in search of pheasants, but simply being in the fields with the sun shining and watching the dogs do what they love was enough to make for a fun day! The birds were just a bonus! At the end of the day there were a lot of bonus points and everyone went home with some healthy food.
