CCOYA Youth Pheasant Hunt A Success

 

The annual Youth Pheasant Hunt was recently held at the Andrews Farm. The event is sponsored by Cameron County Outdoor Youth Activities (CCOYA).
It was a beautiful fall day for 20 young hunters including six young lady hunters who participated in the hunt. Before taking the fields a Safety training program was provided by Kevin Couchman of the Bucktail Rod and Gun Club to start the event. The hunters were also required to practice shooting clay pigeons to become more familiar with shooting at flying targets.
Many volunteers were on hand helping with various parts of the hunt. Young hunters were paired up with experienced mentor hunters to assure safety. Several adult hunters, some from out of the area, brought their bird dogs to help with the hunt. This gives the youth hunters involved a very unique experience to hunt with trained bird dogs.
