The Next Generation

     It's always great to see a kid in the field. At various points, Field & Stream has celebrated that fact with different stories on introducing young people to the sport. The most ambitious effort was in the December 2005 issue, when an entire cover package was devoted to kids and hunting -- it was full of stories about kids, expert opinions on dealing with topics such as morals and death, and a poll in which kids shared their views on field sports.

     In Field & Stream's current December issue, there's a different kind of coverage on kids -- although, this time it's not about tips and advice. It's portfolio called Young Blood by photographer Erica Larsen. Erica is a fantastic person, who's infinitely curious about human nature, and endlessly respectful of all field sports. She spent over a year going on hunts with kids and capturing images of what young passion for hunting is all about.

    Whether you have kids or not, it's impossible not to be touched by the images Erica collected--and encouraged about the future of our sport. There are almost 40 images at the link above, so when you have a few minutes, or need a little pick me up, feel free to click through them -- it's a very special photo essay on a topic that's near and dear to our hearts. --K.H.

I posted a comment on there after looking at the pics, which I greatly enjoyed seeing! It's great to see the Youth getting involved and I'm glad Erica was there to capture some of the special moments of those kids!
I remember seeing some of her work when it was published in F&S, (recently and the '05 issue), She has great talent and skill!!
Thanks for sharing!

Wow, that's a awesome photo essay. I was glad to see some girls in there toward the end. Very cool piece.

It is good to see the girls in there! This fall I was shopping in Gander and I saw more little girls following their daddy through the store than I saw little boys. Must have been a rare night, but it was fun to see!
