The idea of being an Outdoor Mentor is not something we study for. It is the natural gift that goes along with being a good father and a good steward to the “Spirit of the Wild.” ….Uncle John

There is a wild Christmas Tree I know about way out in the woods that never an ornament will grace, but it reflects the spirit of the season never the less. It doesn’t grow as straight as the rest of the trees in the forest, because this big buck visits it periodically rubbing his antlers on the course bark. This would seem to be decoration enough, however. When I visit the tree, and point it out to a new young hunter, there is an inner excitement in knowing that such a great and powerful animal has displayed his strength telling all the brief visitors here that he is the king of the forest.

UPTON-- For 2008, you can call J.R. Grieves and Caleb Thompson the reigning champs of Wyoming hunting.

It's not because the Upton young men - age 14 and 16 - tagged 400-point elk, and got their picture in a national outdoor magazine. Rather, J.R. and Caleb displayed that outdoor expertise by besting other young hunters in trap shooting, .22 marksmanship wildlife identification and other hunting/outdoor skills at Wyoming's first annual National Rifle Association sanctioned Youth Hunter Education Challenge June 28 at the Upton Gun Club.

Pheasant group provides kids opportunity to experience hunt

Jack Corpuz remembers taking an unloaded shotgun to school many times, never thinking there was anything wrong with leaving it in his car.  Forty years ago, when he was in high school, it was OK to do so. He had permission to go hunting after school.  "You can't do that anymore, of course, and I sure wouldn't advocate it," Corpuz, 57, said last week.  But what Corpuz, secretary of the Central Indiana Chapter of Pheasants Forever, advocates is that youths be taught how to use guns responsibly for hunting and sport shooting.
