Youth and Womens Hunt
Our last event was Saturday, December 1, 2012 at Park Lake Pheasant Preserve. Traditional walkup bird hunts behind seasoned hunting dogs were provided for approximately twenty women and young hunters. Everyone was able to shoot clay pigeon targets for a hunt warmup, followed by a hunt in groups of 2 people at a time with hunt mentors provided. Bird cleaning classes were given as well as pre-hunt safety instruction for all. Check out the pictures (see the PHOTOS) tab and click on 2010 Youth_Womens Hunt folder. Call Greg Dahl at 231-638-2339 more information. The next hunt will be December 7, 2013.
