Host Marianne Eaton visits the Sportsman's Club of Franklin County to learn the highs and lows of skeet shooting. Then, we learn about what a 'Quest' is, a 150-year-old English tradition that has been transplanted to Vermont by an organization called Vital Communities. Also, we accompany Nature Conservancy staff and volunteers as they head out to pull invasive plants. Lastly, host Lawrence Pyne accompanies hunters from the Ugly Dog Hunting Company on a woodcock hunt in Milton and the Champlain Islands.
