    I got this off of another site. It's about Girl Scouts in Alaska learning to trap beavers. Check out the link below and read the article. Wish they would do something like that around here!!!

    I'm with you on that Big58cal! (wonder if they'd go door to door selling hides)[:D]
    Seriously I think this would be a great thing for anywhere(not just Alaska)...we can only hope it catches on.

    Scouting still teaches many outdoor skills with merit badges in Camping, Wilderness Survival, Orienteering, Pioneering, Archery, Shotgun Shooting, Rifle Shooting, Canoeing and many others. It is one organization that has withstood the test of time and remains true to it ideals....a scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.

    I seen the article. Unfortunately PETA is trying to throw their 2cents in, spoiling a good thing.

    As for scouting, it has changed over the years from when I was a scout. Today, way to many politics. And with all the issues with Boy Scout leaders in years past, everyone is on high alert.

    i got my eagle scout about 3 years ago and i was lucky to have a good scout leader, Boy Scouts is a great program but it seems the number of kids in it are going down. I think all father and sons should give it a try.

    Congratulation Adam on your hard work to become an Eagle Scout.I know it took alot of work to get that far. I myself am a Boy Scout leader, my son is a 2nd yr Weblo and will be crossing over in March to a troop. I agree with what you said Adam that all father and sons should give scouts a try.The sad thing there is when you ask a dad to give some time to help out all of a sudden excuse start coming out. It seems like as long as they don't have to do anything with their child its ok. Thats why the video games and such have become so popular today. Parents don't want to or make time to spend with their children. That has become obvious with us sportsman as we see a decline in the number of young hunter today.
     
  8. The wilderness road girlscout council has a patch for something like hunting or gun safty I think.
    Outdoor Adventurer is the patch I think. It has alot of things the girls can do.

    I have sons who are Life, Second Class and Tiger.....hoping they will all make Eagle. It's tough competition with video games, but I think they're going to make it.

    Bowcrazy thats great.Sounds like all 3 are on thier way to becoming an eagle scout. Once an eagle scout allways will be an eagle scout and nobody can take that away from them.
