Img25.pngProbably one of the  best ways to learn about the environment and wildlife is to become a part of the "wild" world as a predator hunting game.  Hunting is looked upon as a bad thing by many people who have never hunted.  With fragmentation of land, hunt able areas are more & more difficult to get access to.   Hunting is becoming a dying sport.  Education is the key.  Youth hunts are a way to give a child a taste of hunting under the right supervised conditions.   Learning about the land, learning to hunt as a team with your dog, blending in safe shooting skills, & respect for wildlife are just some of things that can be gained by a mentored hunt.

       Several local conservation organizations sponsor local youth shooting sports programs including youth hunts.  The Argyle Rod & Gun ClubSugar River Valley Chapter of Pheasants Forever, the Green County Conservation Club, and DNR sponsor a "Learn to Hunt" Pheasant Youth Hunt the last Saturday before the opening of Pheasants Season at the Argyle Rod & Gun Club and Savanna Springs. 

      The individually mentored hunt is proceeded by 4 hours of classroom teaching including additional hunters safety, dog handling and hands on experience on the trap range.  Learn more about:
