On February 12th my husband and I, along with our 10 year old daughter, attended the 15th Annual Jr Pheasant Hunt. She, along with 60 other kids ages 10-18 got to experience a great day of hunting pheasant on private property in Campo. Your

Your San Diego SCI was a sponsor of this free youth event. Other sponsor participants included the California Rifle and Pistol Association, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, San Diego National Wild Turkey Federation, North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association and the US Department of Agriculture.

The day included dog retrieving seminars, turkey hunting tips,

trap shooting with shooting instruction, an archery range, demo by trappers, actual field hunting with mentors for the youth, bird cleaning and lunch following the hunt.

It was a wonderful day and there were smiles everywhere! Approximately 40% of the participants were girls. We even had one deaf hunter with us. The kids soaked in all of the knowledge from the day and were happy and tired by the end!
