PF to hold Youth Shoot

Thursday, September 30, 2010

Cherokee County Pheasants Forever is holding a youth shoot for ringneck pheasants on Sunday, October 3. The hunt is open to anyone who is 12-18 years old and has a current hunter safety certificate.

The event will be held at Jim Steffen's Hidden Acres Skeet Range, located between Quimby and Washta on Highway 31 - look for the PF sign for directions.

Each youth will get 30 shots at a combination of skeet and sporting clays, with trophies awarded for 1st-4th places in two divisions. Inexperienced shooters must be accompanied by an adult.

Registration will be from noon-12:30 p.m. on the day of the shoot. Those registering will receive a free subscription to PF Ringneck magazine, compliments of Cherokee County Pheasants Forever.

Following registration, shooters will have a program on gun safety and shooting instruction and a clay bird warm-up. Ringneck shooting will begin immediately following the safety and instruction talks. All clay pigeons are provided. There is no cost for this event. A drawing will be held for three shotguns, and you must be present to win.

Following the shoot, there will be a hot dog cookout.

If you have any questions, call Greg Eaton of Youth Programs at 712-225-2414 or Dave Brown at Fireice Firearms, 225-2213.

Rain date for the shoot is October 10.
