Event: 11th Annual Youth Hunt
Our 11th Annual Youth Hunt was a great time for 35 area youth hunters and family members. This hunt was Free to Youths 12 to 16 years old and was held at Three Arrows Hunting Preserve in LeRoy Minnesota on the 23rd of October, 2021.
Parents or guardian accompanied the youth on the hunt and walked the field with their young hunters. It was a sea of blaze orange in the pheasant fields of LeRoy and the weather was crisp and clear for the hunters, a picture perfect day that had temperatures that allowed the dogs to work hard all through the hunts.
Adult volunteer dog handlers and their dogs were provided for the hunters to aid in the flushing of the pheasants.
Hunters provided their own 12 or 20 gauge shotgun with a working safety. If they did not have a shotgun, one was provided for them by our Pheasants Forever Chapter. Shot gun shells were also provided for the hunters. Refreshments were provide before and after the hunt. The youth and were also treated to raffle prizes of hunting accessories and two lucky youth won their own shotgun.
We would like to thank our dog handlers for their volunteer spirit and the opportunity to watch their dogs work.
We would also like to thank our corporate sponsor for this event the SEMA Equipment Company of Grand Meadow Minnesota.
Thank you also goes out to Ben Jacobsen and his team at Three Arrows Hunting Preserve who provide the venue for us to have our events.
A thank you also should be extended to our chapter members who work so very hard to put on these hunts. We are thankful that we can give back to the next generation and provide for them a wonderful opportunity in the great outdoors. We hope you will remember this time in fields fondly as you grow and can someday carry on our legacy of habitat conservation and preservation.
