Terry Whitson has a dove hunt for the youth.I hear he give the kids shells and lunch. Then the next week he has a family and friends hunt. If you are not a rich dude forget it.Yes he may let a few poor kids hunt.But really this is a dove hunt for the rich or famous.

Why not

Question: You say "My child hunted..." and "...50 kids hunting"? How can you have 50 kids with shotguns hunting and it be safe??
How many were hunting at one time? How many adults were supervising? Why would not the first volley of shots scare the doves away for a long period at a time? How were the kids trained in safety? You say "child" and "kids”, so what were the age ranges?
It is just that I seem to remember a US Vice President shooting a fellow hunter in the same hunting party. Years ago, the Police Chief of Greeneville, TN shot and killed a fellow hunters' dog while the two were bird hunting. A nephew of a Hawkins County man was shot and killed on a wild hog hunt in SC and there were only three in the same hunting party. So just curious.

I was there only as an adult to help supervise, so I do not know all the details, but I do know this. The kids where all selected by TWRA through a drawing. Mr. Whitson did not pick the kids. He only paid for everything and let them use his land. The kids were all from area schools shooting teams, so they all have had experience around firearms. In addition they had stations for each shooter that was far enough away that safety was no issue. TWRA game wardens and commissioners were all there to oversee the hunt as well. The kids had a blast. Their shells were supplied at no cost and they could shoot all they wanted. Their food was given to them and they could eat all they wanted. It was a great event with plenty of adults available and an emphasis on safety.
