Did you ever have a class in high school that discussed hunting?

It turns out there is such a course in a Minnesota school district. The class or group rather, The Waconia High School Conservation Group, has a lot to do with introducing students to the outdoors and that includes participating in Minnesota pheasant hunts.

The club has an impressive 250 members and that number one seems to be increasing. The group participates in a variety of conservation activities including cleaning ditches and other outdoor areas around the school’s area.

Local hunters volunteer their time to take the students out hunting. There is practice done to make everything is safe and the students properly learn how to shoot and to hunt on their own and with a group.

This year the group find a great place to hunt. The landowner has some of his property in a state conservation program that gives him some money to keep the land in habitat form instead of turning into crop acreage. It’s different than what so many others have been forced to do for economic reasons.

The good news for the pheasant population is there are a few landowners like this out there. He and his wife work full-time and he loves hunting so he keeps the land in the program even if there is more money to be made elsewhere.

It’s good news to the young hunters as well. They get the chance to hunt pheasants right in their home area. It’s a great way to introduce new hunters to the sport. They learn how to hunt and the tradition is passed on to more generations.


The more programs there are like this around the nation the better. And we all have thanks for landowners that do what they can to keep the upland hunting tradition strong.
