Welcome to the next generation in conservation and pheasant hunting enthusiasts. In efforts to help our younger generation play a larger role in our efforts to conserve and provide habitat for upland game, our chapter provides today's youth with opportunities to learn about what Pheasants Forever is truly about. The Woodbury County Chapter provides conservation educational materials, safety of firearms and mentor youth hunts for those kids who may not have the same opportunities as most. Take a moment and read about our youth events or find out how you can become a key component of helping future Pheasants Forever Members.

2018 Youth Mentor Pheasant Hunt
Pheasants Forever mentored pheasant hunts are the ideal way to introduce kids and teens to hunting, as experienced volunteer hunters from Pheasants Forever coach youth on the importance of firearm safety, wildlife habitat and hunting technique.
The future of responsible hunting and conservation lies in the hands of our youth. The Woodbury County Pheasants Forever Chapter believes that taking a child hunting is an excellent opportunity to teach them not just how to shoot game, but about the whole culture and tradition of hunting. Our chapter provides several opportunities for youth to get involved with the sport and to interact with other young hunters.
Oct 13 2018. Contact Jason for more information.

Youth Hunter Safety and Education
While we all like to have fun in the field and chase pheasants for miles, safety is one of the most important aspects. We promote and encourage hunter safety in the field. Through these classes and education we show both youth and adults the proper ways to hold and maneuver guns, along with proper gun care. Our goal is helping those who are not familiar with a gun, to become comfortable with handling their firearm so that they can enjoy their hunts successfully. For more information as to when or where our hunting safety classes can be found, please follow the links below.
