Editor's note: The News Tribune will run this monthly feature in Pursuits starting in March. 

Tanner, 15, can be shy at first, but once you get to know him he loves to talk and is very willing to help out. Tanner has a love for sports and is currently in basketball and also plans to enroll in baseball in the spring. Tanner enjoys spending time outdoors, participating in anything that is related to hunting or fishing and looking at hunting magazines. Tanner also loves animals and would enjoy having a pet. He likes to draw and has drawn lots of pictures of deer. A caring family who lives in the country would be ideal for Tanner.
