Event description

Description

The Pheasant Forever and Quail Forever's NO CHILD LEFT INDOORS® Initiative is part of a national movement to reach a generation of young people fixated on electronics and get them outdoors. We want to reverse the trend of inactivity and obesity in today’s youth and actively engage them in outdoor activities and in learning about nature and conservation. We also want to foster tomorrow’s leaders and conservation-minded citizens.

On Saturday October 13th, the Franklin County Iowa Chapter of Pheasants Forever will sponsor a youth day pheasant hunt. This is an opportunity for boys and girls between the ages of 9 & 16 to learn some outdoor skills including how to shoot a compound bow, basic shotgun safety and experience the fun of pheasant hunting while under the direct supervision of an experienced hunter. Youth 16 years old must have a valid Iowa hunting license and habitat stamp.

All youth should dress appropriately for the type of weather and activity. We will have a limited supply of blaze orange vests and caps on hand so those who have their own we are asking you to bring them. The Chapter will supply other safety equipment that youth will be required to wear during the day. We will be glad to work with those individuals that do not have a shotgun.

All activities will be under the direct supervision of an adult with experience in hunter safety. At the conclusion of the day each participant will have the opportunity to:

  • Safely shoot a compound bow at a stationary target
  • Safely shoot a pellet rifle at a stationary target
  • Identify and explain the different types of shotguns used in upland pheasant hunting
  • Demonstrate basic firearm safety practices
  • Identify the male and female pheasant and explain the difference in size and color
  • Demonstrate how to safely load and unload a shotgun
  • Safely shoot a shotgun at a flying clay target
  • Participate in a live pheasant hunt with hunting dogs and potentially shoot at live pheasant
  • Watch a demonstration and participate in field dressing a pheasant

This activity will be limited to 50 youth and participants, all of the day’s activities are free of charge. Pre-registration is required so that we can assure there will be plenty of food and safety equipment for everyone. A parent or legal guardian must accompany all youth participants. We ask that parents with hunting experience be willing to help mentor their child or others children during the day’s activities.
