Deer season!

Deer season is my favorite time of the year. In the state of Missouri, you have to be six to fifteen years old to deer hunt in youth season. If you are five years old or younger you can’t hunt. If you want to attend Hunter Safety Firearm and Archery Course, you must be at least ten years of age. If you pass, and you are ten to fifteen years old, then you have to get a junior license. If you are sixteen you must get a valid adult license to hunt. That is everything you need to know about deer season! If you are youth deer hunter I hope you get a 12 point buck!

Good Luck!

Turkey In Disguise!

All fifth grade classes did the Turkey in Disguise project. It’s a paper turkey that you dress up. The main idea is to dress up a turkey so it does not get eaten for thanksgiving! Some people did football players, pigs , chickens , flowers , and other

different disguises. So if you are looking for a turkey don’t go by miss Wanda’s or you just might blow their cover!
