Forty years of youth firearms safety have come from this outdoors haven near Benson

Email

BENSON -- John T. Hutchinson stepped up to a line of rifle-carrying, 11- and 12-year-old boys and girls on his land outside of Benson last Saturday, and began by lifting his trigger finger.

"One is all you need," said Hutchinson. "Don't count on that second shot. It could be a crippler."

Being absolutely certain of the first shot is a lesson that Hutchinson has been making to young, aspiring hunters for no less than 40 years now.
