During conservation group Pheasants Forever’s fourth annual youth hunt Sept. 21-22, two girls and 26 boys, ages 10-15, took home 65 pheasants, reported Jim Sonne, PF Blue Mountain Chapter 258 president.

Six of the kids got their first pheasant. To participate, the youngsters had to take a hunter safety course, have a license and be accompanied by an adult in the field.

Corrie Hadley with the Washington Fish and Game gave the group 100 pheasants to release on the weekend.

Chapter members delivered the birds to the Clyde Shooting Preserve on Friday, and George Endicott, Mike Davis and Ty Lane released the birds in three locations Saturday morning, just before the hunt. The early morning release and the youths shooting trap before the hunt were contributing factors for a successful hunt, Jim said.

On Sunday morning George and Mike released birds before the hunt in fields on John Hair’s property and again the kids did well.

After the hunt they offered trap and .22-caliber rifle shooting, a barbecue and a raffle for a Ruger .22 that they gave away at the event.

It turned out to be their most successful hunt because of contributions from Gene Weinmaster, youth chairman, members Gary Benson, Carl Bisgard, Mike Davis, George Endicott, John Houston, Joel Petty, Randy Snyder, Gene Weinmaster, Dean Wass, Dan Eveland, Ron Fastrup and Jim, volunteers and the hunting dogs. For youths interested in trap and skeet shooting, the Walla Walla Gun Club is starting up a new program. Call Bob Bloch at 509-529-7288.

For info on hunting call Kit or Ty Lane at 509-849-2253. Anyone interested in becoming involved in PF activities can call Jim at 509-525-3550, email or online see
