2011 youth pheasant hunt

The Okobojo Creek Pheasants Forever chapter invites youth ages 10-17 to join them in the youth pheasant hunt this Saturday, October 1.

Participants are asked to please eat before assembling in front of Lamb’s Discount at 12:30 p.m. for instructions and to get underway. Bring a shotgun and hunting vest if possible; shells and orange hunting caps will be provided.

Youth must have their hunting license, and those under the age of 12 will not be permitted to carry a gun. There will be a drawing for shotgun sponsored by Cone-Ag.

The youth hunt will teach and encourage participation in hunting and shooting activities and educate future generations on the benefits that hunting offers to conservation and wildlife management. Having mentors teach hunting etiquette will ensure that these future hunters enjoy the outdoors responsibly.
