Hunting

A friend asked me about hunting because she wanted to provide her son with wild game to eat. She had chosen to raise her child in Alaska so they both would have opportunities to spend time outdoors, connect to the natural world and "hunt and fish."

One Saturday in December continued a tradition so strong in hundreds of south Louisiana families that the celebration surrounding the first day of "dog" season rivals the Fourth of July and Mardi Gras. "It started with my grandpa, Louis, and it's remained strong for lots of us," Jeff Dinino said days before their pack of deer dogs were turned loose in the swamps in St. James Parish.
