Welcome to the next generation in conservation and pheasant hunting enthusiasts. In efforts to help our younger generation play a larger role in our efforts to conserve and provide habitat for upland game, our chapter provides today's youth with opportunities to learn about what Pheasants Forever is truly about. Wisconsin provides conservation educational materials, safety of firearms and mentor youth hunts for those kids who may not have the same opportunities as most. Take a moment and read about our past youth events, see upcoming events, or find out how you can become a key component of helping future Pheasants Forever Members.
Youth Hunter Safety and Education
While we all like to have fun in the field and chase pheasants for miles, safety is one of the most important aspects. We promote and encourage hunter safety in the field. Through these classes and education we show both youth and adults the proper ways to hold, maneuver and proper gun care. Getting those who are not familiar with a gun, comfortable with handling their firearm so that they can enjoy their hunts successfully. For more information when or where our hunting safety classes can be found, please follow the links below.
1-19-21 Youth Learn to Pheasant Hunt at Springer Creek Lodge
On Saturday Jan 9th, 2021 we were able to have our first youth hunt as a chapter. All the youth hunters had the opportunity to shoot a round of sporting clays as well as take part in a pheasant hunt. A huge thank you to Springer Creek Lodge for hosting the event, the volunteers from our chapter, Triple J Wing and Clay and Taking Wing Stewardship for the use of bird launchers, the volunteers from Oconto Sportsmen Club and for all the youth that attended our event. We had such a great day mentoring youth and putting on this even, we cannot wait for our next one.
