With last year’s youth pheasant hunt being such a huge triumph; there were high hopes for another successful event this year.

The annual youth hunt, organized by the High Plains Chapter of Pheasants Forever, took twenty three young hunters out into the field to gain experience pheasant hunting.

All of the young hunters, whose ages ranged between 10 and 17, were members of the Texas Trail Ringnecks, the student division of Pheasants Forever. Some of these have hunted previously, while for some this would have been their first experience of pheasant hunting.

The group arrived early in the morning on December 6, 2014 accompanied by a parent or guardian at the Silver Wings Hunting Ranch in LaGrange, Wyoming. They were treated to a breakfast for champions that contained Pancakes, eggs and sausages with drinks including juice, milk, coffee and hot cocoa on offer.

Those who had less hunting experience were kept back at the ranch to sharpen their skills; this included a round of clay pigeon shooting. The more experienced members of the youth group were taken into the field with guides from the Hidden Pines Retriever Club.

After two hours in the field, the two groups swapped. The least experienced hunters put their sharpened skills to the test in the hunt for pheasants; while those who had already been in the field practiced their shooting skills on the clay pigeon range.

Experienced hunters also accompanied the new pheasant hunters and many passed on some of their passion to the young hunters. Hopefully this passion for the sport will stay with the youths and help the sport maintain a healthy community.

After the hunting was finished lunch was provided. Then the youth hunt was over.

Have you or your children participated in a youth hunt this year? Do you help to organize youth hunts?
