Kids in the Outdoors

By: Heather Iverson, Guest Blogger

image5My daughter is 4 years old and we have done our best to introduce her from a young age to the outdoors.  From playing in the mud to fishing and camping she has enjoyed it since she could walk!  She has a great eye and can spot animals often before we even see them, she can identify deer tracks and say if its a buck or doe, raccoon tracks, coyote tracks, and turkey tracks, she’s awesome at spotting deer beds, rubs and scrapes.  We decided this fall she was ready to come along hunting.
