Great points on how to counter these stories. We all know these are not hunters but are criminals.
I actually feel kinda bad for the kids. Granted they should have, and likely did know better, but they were just following the lead of their adult role models.
So remember the kids are always looking up to you, whether you do right or wrong and will follow your lead because they look up to you. Its important to do the right thing at all times. An example for me teaching my son honesty is not taking too much change, if given, at the store. A simple action by me taught him that it is wrong to take what is not yours. These kids just did as the adults did and thought it was cool or ok. I pray they can turn their lifes around, and welcome the kids into my campfire anytime to learn the proper way to hunt.
Stepping off the stump and back into the shadows now...
Happy Hunting and take a kid hunting, they are the future of the outdoors!
Aim for the center of the target... the center of an aspirin is the same size as the center of a basketball. The difference is mental.
