Small game can be an entry for young people into hunting, but it’s also is a tradition for sportsmen going back centuries and shows up in classic literature from all over the world. On the next Outdoor Explorer, we’re revisiting hunting upland game birds and small mammals. It can be low-key fun that you do with friends near town, or it can be an all-consuming hobby involving extensive training and investment. Tune in with us to learn more.
