The youth pheasant program is designed to provide young hunters with specialized pheasant hunting training and instruction, as well as reinforce what they learned in Basic Hunter Education. Young hunters will have the opportunity to practice firearms safety, develop shooting skills, and participate in a special pheasant hunt under the guidance of a safe, experienced adult hunter. This program, held by Lee Sportsmen’s Association, is a pheasant seminar, and a mentored pheasant hunt. The seminar is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, September 16th from 9am-12pm (based on participant availability) and the hunt will be Saturday, October 7th from 9am-12pm. In addition to the seminar and hunt, participants are required to attend mandatory range days. The date and time of these range days will be based on participant’s availability.
