Alisha Haken, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
One of Alisha Haken’s favorite hunting memories happened when she was working at Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge in Minnesota. She had the opportunity to be an instructor at a six-week youth waterfowl hunting course, teaching young hunters firearm safety, and the ins and outs of waterfowl ecology and hunting. At the end of the course, each student had the opportunity to hunt with a mentor on Youth Waterfowl Hunt Day. Alisha took this picture of her hunting partner, Piper, as they enjoyed the pink sunrise before their successful hunt on the refuge.
