Nov. 21-23 kicks off another string of youth camps! If you're interested in visiting an event to get an idea of what they look like, want to help out – glass, cook, fire tending, etc., or just looking for a road trip with the family during this great weather, here are some great options. Details and contact information are below.

Also, don't forget it's small game season, so take advantage of flushing quail, running rabbits, jumping jackrabbits and ducks on cupped-wings. A good small game hunter makes a great deer hunter.
