Nothing wrong with deer hunting but you and other young people have a chance to bring pheasant and quail hunting back. I hope you can.Stick with pheasant hunting and your bird dog!! People 3 times as old as you dont remember that pheasant hunting is what drove hunting in the USA and sold a record number of licenses that never will be again reached... A lot of guys and bussinesses selling stuff will try to pull you away from pheasant hunting and into deer hunting etc.. Dont fall for it! Get your buddies your age into it too, that is hard to do and often a touchy deal, but it takes a hunter to make a hunter!!
