Youth Pheasant Day – The Hunt Recap

This year’s fair-weather youth pheasant hunting day had  youth hunters along with their mentors and field dogs turn out for an educational and productive day.

Several of the youth hunters have opted to take their season’s first bird into the Norco pheasant taxidermy class to be held later this year. Everyone bagged birds — a testament to the trap range practice sessions in prior weeks.

Pictures below show some of the day highlights: setting out the birds, safety instructions on hunting in a line with dogs, and a successful hunt

Many Norco volunteers make this program successful and we appreciate their time, patience, dedication, and knowledge
