For the duck hunting purists out there, I apologize. I took my three daughters with me to jump shoot the farm pond on New Years day. My dad and his pointer Jake did the "end around" and flushed the ducks on the pond over the girls and I. Four Shots later we were picking up our prizes. Erin, the oldest even helped breast out the ducks and fix them for dinner that night. It was a good quick introduction to hunting. Each of the girls got a wing for a souvenir. (their idea)

Jake the Pointer even retrieved a duck out of the water! Poor Guy was shivering after that!

Thank you for sharing those pictures.....Young ladies in pink camo is so cute. I love the pink boots.

Keep up the great work, introducing young girls into the sport of hunting. And of course, my favorite, Duckhunting!

My father doesn't hunt, only fishes. When I go to NJ to visit him. He now finds someone to take me goose/duck hunting. The first time I came back home to his house with my geese. The look he gave me of being proud. Is a memory I'll cherish forever. He helped me clean them and I cooked a goose dinner that night. That goose never tasted better!

I'm sure your girls will remember this day for a lifetime.

First of all, way to go introducing your girls to hunting. I wish more girls were introduced young, although I think that is happening more and more.

Love the pink camo. Pink isn't a favorite color of mine, but the pink boots really work.

Adorable pictures, and they look as though they are having a good time, which is, I think, the most important thing.

All right, now I know pink camo can actually be used in hunting!

Way to go, Rocky! Any purist who wouldn't like that is nuts. And I love the fact that it was the girls' idea to keep the wings.
