Young Hunters Day is a free fun filled day, sponsored by our local Hunters Association. The children could participate in archery, shotgun/skeet/laser shooting, fishing, pelt identification, and tomahawk throwing, with safety emphasized of course. Every child present could win one of the many raffle prizes and a yummy BBQ lunch was provided as well.
Unlike last year, which was super hot, today was cold and rainy (at times), but that didn't stop the children from having a super fun time!
Here are a few pictures from the day:

~ Rescued Animals ~
I only took pictures of the Red-tailed Hawk and the Barn Owl, but they also had a Box Turtle and a Hedgehog which had to be put inside since it was too cold.

~ Tomahawk Throwing ~
~ Raffle Prizes ~
At the end of the day there is a raffle. Each child receives a ticket and when their name gets called they get to go into the building to choose their prize. I always love seeing what each child chooses! This year Captain picked out a tent, Twinkle Toes picked a pink princess camping chair, and Chiquita picked a set of sidewalk crayons and bubbles. It looks like I missed getting a picture of Rascal with his new Fishing Pole...
... and Snuggles has hardly set down his new backpack.
Even Rose enjoyed the day!
