Event: GVPF Young Hunter Program
The Gallatin Valley Pheasants Forever Young Hunter Program is one of the best opportunities for youth in Montana to learn how to properly shoot a shotgun and hunt Pheasants & other game birds. It is spread over 5 Saturdays (1/2 day) and 2 evenings in late July and August. In the past, we have been able to provide a 1/2 day pheasant hunt behind pointers in September for those who successfully graduate and hope to do so in 2021. The program provides instruction on Hunter safety, proper shooting form, wildlife conservation, bird habitat, bird species, bird dog types and how to care for them in the field, where and how to hunt, shotgun & ammo types and uses, proper care of guns, proper interaction with land owners and how to field dress wild birds.
Participants will learn to shoot trap, skeet and sporting clays. All guns, ammo, clays, ear/eye protection and instruction is provided free of charge.
We have room for 15 youth between the ages of 12-15 who have successfully passed Hunter Safety. Applications due by June 15th, 2021, selection begins in May. Participants and one parent or guardian are expected to attend all sessions.
