Photos tell the stories of young hunters who enjoyed success this fall
The future of hunting—and the millions of dollars hunters contribute to conservation and local economies—depends on recruiting young people to the sport.
As in previous seasons, several readers this fall shared photos of young hunters having success in the field, and that's great to see. Whether it was deer close to home or an out-of-state hunting trip, some memorable photos of successful young hunters have been submitted for posting to the Herald's online Trophy Room gallery and possible publication in the Sunday Outdoors pages.
Print space is at a premium these days, however, so rather than sprinkle single photos out over many weeks, we decided to print several of them at once.
Here, then, are a few of the memorable moments youth hunters enjoyed this fall. We'll print additional photos featuring hunters of all ages in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, if you have a hunting—or fishing—photo you'd like to share with Herald readers, please send it to by email to Brad Dokken at email@example.com or by postal mail to Dokken c/o The Grand Forks Herald, 375 Second Ave. N., Box 6008, Grand Forks ND 58203.
We'll post them to the Trophy Room and run select photos in print as space permits.
