[CG :2 LinePaul Anderson1st deer hunt]
We kick it off with Bailey’s first year that she was eligible to deer hunt. Bailey warmed up with some fine shooting and some tasty grouse, then when this cool looking droptine buck stood up, Bailey made a great shot. She was thrilled to take her first big game animal after 6 years of going hunting with her Dad and Grandpa.

The boys at school didn’t believe Allison when she told them she had passed on a three by four opening weekend because she was looking for something bigger, but they do now! Craig says this is his daughters third buck and words can’t describe the pride a father feels during a time such as this which followed with a high five, a loving hug and a call to her grandpa to tell him about the big buck.

Darin’s buddy is always claiming how great alaska is and how he can harvest all waterfowl species except for a swan. So Darin had him apply, he drew a swan tag, and together they had a blast! Darin showed him all utah had to offer, from swans to geese to ducks. They topped off his trip with a good old canvasback hunt to send him home back to the frozen state of Alaska!

Brad decided to go duck hunting instead of deer hunting this year and boy was he happy. He and his son-in-law, Scott, cleaned up, taking home nearly 2 limits of ducks. He even talked his wife and girls into going with him the next day. Brad says, once he learns to shoot straight, he expects to get a lot more ducks and geese this year!
