Many students from Audubon High School are currently gearing up for hunting season. With bow season already in full swing and with trapping having started last Saturday, this season is already in full swing.
Sophomore Nathan Hagedorn is very excited. He plans on hunting coyotes all winter, deer during shotgun season, and trapping for raccoons and beavers this year. He stated, “I hunt and trap because it is a fun thing to do”, and because it is also a fun activity to participate in while with friends.
Another sophomore, Derek Nielsen, is also excited for this upcoming season. He is also planning on hunting deer and coyotes, and he will probably participate in those activities alongside Hagedorn.
Senior Matt Fett said, “I just ordered a new ladder stand (for bow season).” He is very excited to get to use it, and he enjoys bow season immensely.
Hunting is a very valued part of many students’ lives. It is something to do when it’s raining or snowing instead of being cooped up in the house. Whether the hunting is done here or many miles away, all that hunt can agree that it is a passion that cannot be ignored.
