8TH Annual Darrell Brown Memorial Youth Upland Hunt

Each hunter will have the opportunity to harvest at least four birds during this free hunt

The Smoky Hill Pheasants Forever (PF) chapter, in cooperation with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, Pheasant Run Control Shooting Area, and the Hunting Heritage Group, Inc. will host its 8th annual youth upland hunt in memory of former PF volunteer, Darrell Brown. The hunt will be held Oct. 26 at the Hays City Sportsman Club and is open to youth age 12 through 18.

Hunters will learn about training and hunting with dogs, field safety and gun handling, how to clean and prepare birds, as well as what type of habitat to look for when hunting upland birds. Hunters will then have the opportunity to hunt with mentors and provided dogs.

This special hunt is being offered as part of the Kansas Hunter Recruitment and Retention Program, “Pass It On,” so the event is free.

For more information, or to register for the hunt, contact Shayne Wilson at (785) 628-1415 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
