    So being 18 makes one a better shot then a 16 or 17 year old. Yea, sure.

    27/1 with four kids? I was up there both days in NE Cal and picking green for Riley was a chore. Both days we waited for the sun to come up before being able to see definition. She ended up 13/1 and that was working at it.

    The pictures must be amazing. That would be a crazy hunt for sure to see 4 kids that efficient at picking eclipse phase greenies.

    I'll go a step further. Aside from 66% of the hunt done before sunrise (ID'ing the birds), kids shooting from a layout position. Takes a knack to do that, especially cold coming right out from the gate. Would love to see those kids shoot. I love watching great shooting.

    following the ducks
    Which backs up the point that these "kids" don't need the advantage of an early opener.

    Right. Judge all kids by this standard which was really tongue in cheek.

    Jr hunt isn't to give kids a advantage. It's a teaching weekend. Heritage weekend. Yes, parents mess it up. Others don't take advantage of the rest of the season. That's a whole other thread. So go ahead, start it up. I'm sure you'll get participation.

    Good news is people enjoyed themselves and birds were very available. Can't say I'm not jealous but hey good on them for having a successful hunt in the field, a day to remember for sure.
