  1. It is a learning process for me, to try to put myself in the shoes of an adult beginner – because I simply don’t know what it’s like to be an adult beginner in hunting or shooting.I’m not a particular fan of canned hunts, but I see upland birds as being in a different category than hunting larger game in a high fence area. I also think it serves a useful purpose in that it does allow someone who is trying to get started hunting to do so in a more convenient manner than a do-it-yourself hunt on public land which can be the next step in your hunting education.
