Dave Manny: “This is my five-yea-old lab Tucker pheasant hunting in lanark, Illinois at the Rack and WIng Hunt Club. He did great; through the mud, water, and sludge he worked his tail off making some great retrieves. We had a great time.”

A special youth hunt

Hanna City brothers Josh and Jacob Ruchotzke both face tremendous physical obstacles. Jacob, 11, has been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, while his older brother Josh, 14, lost his legs and most of his fingers to a severe infection. Yet both brothers were able to shoot their first deer duing the Illinois Youth Firearms Hunt. The hunt was arranged by the Heart of Illinois Whitetails chapter of Whitetails Unlimited.
