|Raising Duck Dynasty Kids in the City|
So how do you give your city kids the rugged outdoor experience when you live in the heart of a big city? Believe it or not there are hunting, fishing and homesteading experiences all around you. Most big cities, especially in the Southwest offer a full parks and recreation experience. Phoenix City Parks offers everything from urban fishing to rock climbing walls. So then, the place to begin teaching your kids the Duck Dynasty way of life is with a Walmart urban fishing license. While children under 12 fish for free, you will need an affordable urban fishing license.
If you want to try the fishing experience before you go purchasing a license and equipment I recommend you visit your local Bass Pro Shop where you can get a hands on lesson for free. This is also an excellent place to check out local hunting gear and of course the latest Duck Commander Duck Calls.
If you haven't been to the Arizona Fish and Game website you really must check it out. There are links to free learning materials and lists of educational events and the greatest field trip of the year, Arizona Fish and Game weekend! Arizona Fish and Game is packed with events for everyone including kids to try fishing, shooting and even shooting a bow! The event is set up to teach about safety, wilderness survival and give everyone a chance to come in contact with local wildlife.
In addition to practicing urban fishing and visiting Arizona Fish and Game we have amazing family hikes available year round where kids can come in contact with local plant species and take in the mountain views. For a list of family friendly hikes you can go to Phoenix Parks and Recreation.
Finally, if you aren't into gardening and raising your own produce, check into some of the local farms and produce markets like Joe's Farm Grill. It is so important that our kids learn where their food comes from so that they can make educated decisions.
