Opening day of duck season began on October 8, 2016. Many Holton High students began preparing for their annual weekend hunts. All of the student-hunters had to buy their yearly stamps and hunting licenses to ensure that they were legal.
The best day of the season so far took place on November 19, 2016. HHS students Lawson Henry, Clay Baumgartner, Brady Forrester and Taygen Fletcher all set out on the frigid morning at 3:30 a.m. After a slow start to the morning, the ducks began flying in.
“Once we shot one duck, it was game on,” junior Clay Baumgartner said.
The four student hunters all managed to shoot their six duck limit along with one goose.
“It was really cool limiting out,” freshman Taygen Fletcher said.
Memphis, Forrester’s chocolate lab, assisted the four hunters that day as her early training began. Memphis will be sent to Tennessee for eight weeks for duck hunting training. Memphis will be a certified duck hunting dog by the end of her training.
“I know that it will cost a lot of money to get her trained but it will be well worth it,” senior Brady Forrester said.
The boys plan to hunt up until January 1, 2017, the day duck season ends.
