We camp every month of the year so it's pretty easy for our scouts to get
this requirement done....we just ask if anyone needs this and do a hike on
the spot. I suppose it can certainly be done in an urban setting but it
would certainly be more difficult to find 10 "wild" animals. In addition,
getting some andvancement done on a campout certainly promotes activity
