Jerry's Buck
Biggest buck I ever got with a bow!"

John Potter writes: "Gerry has been hunting with me for quite a few years and got this beauty with a bow last year near the end of the rut. "

"Today was the best day of my life!"

A great days hunting!

Corey age 14 who is an outdoor enthusiast who purchased his Remington 20 gauge shotgun specifically for the 2006 youth day hunts. After one hunt with John Potter it would be easy to say from his quotes that he is hooked for life.

Corey has hunted with us for ducks and turkeys during the early youth seasons for a couple of years now.You can see from the look on his face he is hooked big time on hunting.

Through dedication and practice he has also become an excellent duck and goose caller. This year in addition to hunting with us, I plan on having him work with me on a couple of hunts - he is that good!

What is more fun than taking a youth hunting for the first time?
