Youth Pheasant Hunting Clinic Scheduled Near Deary, Idaho
The event will run from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Troy-Deary Gun Club and on private land west of Deary.
“This clinic is a great opportunity to introduce new hunters to the sport of pheasant hunting,” says Jay Roach, North Idaho chapter president of Pheasants Forever. “The goal is to make hunting a fun priority among all the other activities that vie for a teenager’s time.”
Along with the pheasant hunt, youth will learn about wildlife conservation, dog handling, and will be able to hone their marksmanship skills shooting sporting clays.
There will be special emphasis on safety, ethics, sportsmanship and the hunting tradition.
The clinic is free and intended for first-time hunters who have already completed a hunter education course and hold a valid 2008 Idaho hunting license. An adult supervisor must accompany each young hunter throughout the clinic.
Advance registration is required, and space is limited to 25 youths. For more information or to register, contact the Clearwater Region Fish and Game office at 208-799-5010 no later than 5 p.m. Friday, September 19.
Sponsors include the Pheasants Forever, Troy-Deary Gun Club, Flying B-Ranch, Idaho Fish and Game, Snake River Gun Dog & Sportsmen’s Association, and Clearwater Point Dog Club.
