A great start to the season!

Thu, October 05, 2017

The most rewarding part of being an outdoor writer is hearing folks hunting stories, not just another sighting of a spike buck or watching a coyote mouse in a field but what I really like are parents seeing their kids mature through the outdoors. I love to hear them brag on the next generation and they should, it’s our future, it’s our heritage staying alive through another generation.

I met Jim and Andrea Ritchie while taking in some good guitar playing while out with my brother one summer evening and I know Jim is an avid waterfowler and we immediately talked hunting.  Andrea mentioned their son’s passion for hunting, especially whitetail.  I wished them a good season and a good season has come!

Fifteen-year-old William Kafer Shot this Fulton Co. ten-point buck on opening morning around 9:00 with his bow at 25 yards.  The buck field dressed at 200 lbs. and will score approximately 135” P&Y !  Great Job Will!! Thanks for reading and supporting Heartland Outdoors, can’t wait to see what else comes your way this season!!

Until next time, be safe and God bless,
Matt Cheever -  Flatlander
