Tri-County Fish & Wildlife Area will host a youth rabbit hunt on Saturday, Oct. 19.

The hunt is from 8 a.m. to noon. Children will be partnered with an experienced hunter, and various beagle dog handlers will guide the youth hunters as they trail rabbits through fields and woods.

If your child is interested in participating, or for more information, contact Don LeCount at (574) 551-1461 or, or call Tri-County FWA at (574) 834-4461.

LeCount is the man who sold me Daisy.
