“I am Conservation”

Taylor Daly, 14, has been hunting quail for 3 years. Her dad, Jason, an avid hunter, got her started in their long family tradition. In fact, Taylor is wearing a quail-hunting coat that first belonged to her great-grandfather. The coat has been passed down over the generations, and her dad has now passed it on to her. Taylor loves quail hunting so much, during the season she will go hunting at Poosey CA in Livingston County everyday she can after school. “The Poosey area is an awesome place to go because it is filled with tons of quail and pheasants,” said Taylor. —Photo by David Stonner
