Actually, my favorite hunting experience with my boy resulted in no kills. We were hunting Chukar (partiridge) with a friend. We saw 1 Chukar FEATHER during our 3-hour hunt.
But when we were done, my boy said something like "This is the most fun I've had all year. I love being out here." And I felt a great sense of kinship.
Now, if we'd actually had any luck...
