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.
A big thanks to The Bluffs, the guides, and the dogs!
