Family pheasant hunt stirs memories

I tell anyone that asks that I’m a hunter, but that word means something different in Routt County than it did in south-central Kan­sas in which I grew up. I've never hunted deer or big game of any sort. Pheasant hunting accounts for the vast majority of my hunting experience, and this year’s trip was a chance to reconnect with a wealth of childhood memories.
