Event: NC PA Pheasants Forever Mentored Youth Pheasant Hunt #1
Pheasants Forever #630 has hosted a successful mentored youth pheasant hunt for years - and we're pretty good at it! Come be a part of this great event. We are proud to hunt in the habitat our chapter helps to maintain along with our partner, the PA Game Commission. This has been true PA hunting tradition success story!
Each youth and their parent or guardian will be paired with a bird dog and handler for a 2-hour hunting on PA State Game Lands #44 near Brockport, PA in Shawmut. Come experience some of the very best bird hunting in PA over the very best dogs in the area. The dog handlers are please to share the love of this sport with the next generation.
Youth 12-16 must have complete their Hunter Trapper certification. All youth must attend the Safety Day at the Fox Township Sportsmen on Sunday, September 23, 2018 from 1-4PM along with their adult parent or guardian. NO EXPECTIONS! We take safety very seriously.
Our volunteers will discuss bird hunting safety, demonstrate the differing hunting techniques of flushing and pointing dogs and wrap up with trap shooting and instruction. We will supply the hearing and eye protection along with shot gun shells. Bring your own gun or borrow one of ours. Dress to be outside.
The first 85 participants will receive a free hunting vest! Free food and beverages will be available during the break.
There will be a no-cost raffle of youth guns, one for every 25 kids registered.
