A flight of doves breaks above the tree line. Fourteen-year-old Robert Goodall fires his shotgun. The birds continue on their path unharmed.

?Never shoot at the bird,? Robert?s grandfather, Richard Funk, said. ?Always in front of it.?

Robert enjoys going hunting when his grandfather asks him to go along. But the morning?s been slow. He?d prefer something a little more exciting, like football.
