CAMO (Children and Mentors Outdoors) Youth Mentoring Program enjoyed youth hunt at Black Creek Plantation on Sunday, November 15, 2020.
Eight young hunters that previously completed their Hunter Safety and Education Course headed to the woods and were guided by CAMO Mentors and Conservation Enforcement Officers.
Sgt. William "Bill" Freeman provided a safety overview upon arrival and explained the importance of recording a harvest on Alabama's Game Check System before moving a deer.
Youth hunters Armoni Hooks and Dylan Ellis were excited to harvest their first deer of the season.
Armoni Hooks harvested a 4 point buck with Sgt. Freeman and Dylan Ellis harvested a 3 pointer with Hunter Education Instructor Jennifer Johnson.
Commissioner Don Larkins demonstrated dressing techniques both young hunters proudly took their meat home to their family.
CAMO would like to express their appreciation to Pitts Lowman and the Black Creek staff for hosting the youth hunt and to the Conservation Enforcement Officers and mentors for taking time with young hunters to explain the importance of safety while also making great strides in preserving the hunting heritage.
