Event takes place on the afternoon of youth pheasant and quail season day one
GLEN ELDER — On Saturday, Nov. 7, the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks will conduct an event designed to lure more youth and novice hunters into the field. The Glen Elder Youth Shooting Challenge will begin at 1 p.m. and run through 4:30 p.m. at the Glen Elder Wildlife Area Office, just south of the US. Highway 24 and Kansas Highway 128 junction, approximately 1 mile west of Glen Elder.
Although designed for youth and beginners, everyone is welcome to participate regardless of age or experience. Shotshells and targets will be provided.. Shooters may use their own shotguns but youth model shotguns will be available for those who don’t have a shotgun.
Young hunters and their mentors participating in the youth pheasant and quail hunting season, Nov. 7-8, are encouraged to participate, and adults who bring youth may shoot, too.
Young hunters lucky enough to bag a rooster that morning before the trap shoot may enter the long tail feather contest to win prizes. Prizes will also be awarded for the biggest quail by weight. Bring the birds (pheasant tail and spur or entire quail) any time from 1 p.m. to 4 pm. Prizes will be awarded at 4:10 pm. For more information, phone 785-545-3345.
