Back So Soon?
Well, like I said in the previous post, it is sort of addicting.
How can I decide to run away on the day the NY Times decides to run this gorgeous picture??
Right on!!! Get 'Em Samantha!! You go girl!!!
She had won a "dream hunt" given away by a Vermont man whose goal is to get more children to hunt, and she had traveled about 200 miles from her home in Bellingham, Mass., and was missing three days of school to take him up on his offer.
The dream hunt - all expenses paid, including taxidermy - was the brainchild of Kevin Hoyt, a 35-year-old hunting instructor who quit a job as a structural steel draftsman a few years ago and decided to dedicate himself to getting children across the country interested in hunting.
His efforts reflect what hunting advocates across the country say is an increasingly urgent priority, and what hunting opponents find troubling: recruiting more children to sustain the sport of hunting, which has been losing participants of all ages for two decades.
God Bless Mr. Hoyt. If he ever makes his way to the DC area, I'd love to buy him a drink.
