  • I don’t like this because it encourages poaching. But it’s good because of the bond between Danny and his dad.

  • A great story. At the start I was a bit unsure of what poaching was :/ From the story I agree danny is really a champion. It was a little disappointing that they lost all of the pheasant except the big fat ones. A little strange to live in a caraven but their poor. (don’t blame them) :)
