    I never said I wanted Youth days taken away but (I don't count the four days, Only two) But to worry so dang much about kids not getting opportunities? Sorry, They haven't done anything except be born to warrant the extra days of Deer, Turkey and Waterfowl etc. I was happy just to be invited along and was independent enough to go on my own for deer.

    Every Veteran has made sacrifices. Wether in the thick of a fight or in the rear at a depot, they were still deployed and away from family etc and missed not only leisure time but births, deaths, anniversaries etc .

    This is a Federal Law/Benefit for those who have served.... Those of you who "Almost Joined"... or chose not to... That's fine. But keep in mind! The ONLY REASON we don't hold a draft board and selection process is BECAUSE enough people fill the ranks to make that un necessary at the moment..... Let that change and one of you so opposed to a Veteran's hunt will be first in line demanding one if you were qualified!

    Here's two guys and my ol crippled gurl Sissy on a Christmas Eve hunt. Guy on the far end was just out of the Marines after four years. I started taking him at 15. His younger brother the neck ringer was about 14 in this vid, He is just out of the Marines about 18 months now.. I'm on a new computer and have yet to transfer all my old pics or I would post more kids. This was the first duck of the day. IIRC we ended up with two drake pintails and 8-10 mallards. The guy on the end has been guiding in Mo and Arky the last few years.

    I wish they did more for veterans.... I'm still open to taking a veteran turkey hunting. Tried to make it happen a couple of times, fell through. I'd be honored, and work my tail off to get them on a bird.

    Talk to your commissioner! They may be willing to change youth season to Saturday and give Sunday to the veterans.

    I've made this offer on here for several years. Had a couple tentatively set up, but got cancelled. Other than opening weekend of regular season, I'd be glad to take any veteran. I hunt with Daddy the first two days, and will always as long as he is able.

    Good on You!!

    I have had a "Take a Vet hunting: thread on the Fuge since about 2005 or so. I've taken a few myself from Ft Campbell and the Coasties.

    All these “patriots” wanting more guberment intervention and laws. Law for this, law for that, I’m a vet, I’m a tranney, special needs for me, none for thee. Joe will treat you well.
