In an incredible act of kindness, my Uncle (God Bless him), gave me his equity membership in a local hunt club, McCullom Lake Hunt Club (www.mccullomlakehuntclub.com/). At very reasonable rates for birds, and annual dues, Sadie will have a place to hunt for her entire life! Was made official Friday.
Pixie: HA! That's quite the commute from NY, isn't it? Besides, you guys probably have more places out there to hunt more species wild (I thought you were more a wild-bird person anyways...). Illinois isn't a very hunter-friendly state (my opinion). I would recommend being friends with someone in Iowa, or South Dakota, personally (if you were going to commute...). Any takers?
