has become very popular with hunting enthu siasts Kids Hunt weekend o ne of the great things about the sport of hunting is the enjoy ment of spending time with family and friends in the out doors Its a cultural tradition passed down from generation to generation Five years ago folks at the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department recognized this and started a unique program that has become immensely popular with hunting enthusiasts the Kids Hunt weekend The twoday hunt which occurs this Saturday and Sunday is billed as a chance for parents to take their children under the age of 16 into the fields and woods to hunt big game Whats great about the program is it comes one week before the start of the general season This gives young hunters a sporting chance to shoot game without competiting against veteran hunters What a cool idea And if the spike in license sales is an indicator its become a very popular project as well We can think of np better way for fathers and mothers to pass along to their children the love of sport hunting than participation in the Kids Hunt weekend Those moments in the field can become life time memories and bonding as they were for previous generations TODAY
