“Dr. Duck” Everhart’s Youth Waterfowl Clinic
   The 14th Annual Youth Water-
fowl Clinic went GREAT! A total
of 32 youth boys and girls (all first
timers) showed up and the weather
was also great. Each boy and girl
received (thanks to KCSCI) a dozen
mallard decoys, a decoy bag, and
duck call. This way they don't only
leave with the memory of the day,
but are partly outfitted to continue
the sport. The second Saturday, the
day of the hunt we had some high
flood waters, so we were only able to
hunt with a few of the older youth
who had boots. But in all, it was a
great event and another group of fine
youth are now recruited hunters.
   Thanks again to KCSCI for mak-
ing this event possible.

 Dear SCI:
     This summer I went on a hunting trip to Three Rivers,
 Michigan. It was awesome! I really enjoyed the scenery
 and just being outdoors. Every camper there got to take a
 Corsican Ram. I really liked hunting the ram, and learning
 about hunting in general. I got to take my Hunter’s Safety
 course (even though I had already taken it from here in
 Missouri). This Hunter’s Safety course, however, allowed
 you to use your hunter’s safety card in all 50 states, includ-
 ing some parts of Canada. By far, my favorite thing about
 the camp was meeting and making some new friends.
 Every camper there had something about them that was just
 fun. The “staff” members in the camp were very nice too.
 I really learned a lot from them, and on the very last day, I
 got two trophies: one for fishing camp during the whole                              KC SCI Sensory Safari
