Next Youth Day

We will provide each child with some wildlife habitat information, a gun safety lesson, Archery lesson and clay target shooting with a shooting instructors, while small groups of kids hunt with guide and dog in the open field. We will release 3 chukar per child. After the hunt we were going to have the kids come back to the pavilion and show them how to clean their birds to bag and take home. The cost will be $30 per child and we ask that we have at least one adult per every two children present. We will take at least the first 25 children and more if time allows out for the chukar hunt.
