Caroline is not at all keen on the idea of young Laura accompanying Charles on a hunting trip for a variety of reasons, but Laura is very determined that she will go with him and eventually succeeds in talking her parents into letting her tag along after making all the necessary promises of being careful, etc.
Laura is thrilled and excited. She is very close to her father and delights in the fact that she will be able to spend some time alone with him doing something that he loves. Things don't go very smoothly though when Charles is shot after Laura accidently bumps his loaded shot gun.
Not a very interesting or inspiring episode and one that I would have happily missed in spite of the usual excellent acting from both Michael Landon and Melissa Gilbert.
