San Diego Junior Pheasant Hunt
My boys were invited to this annual event (held 3-6-2011 this year) when they went through their hunter education class last summer. The program was started by one of our local DFG agents and his friend eight years ago and has been a popular draw for 72 junior hunters every year since. The kids all get: chances at 2 pheasants, trap shooting, archery, .22 shooting, cleaning instruction and application (on their birds), general safety enforcement, as well as demonstrations in trapping, dog handling, and turkey hunting.
The event is put on by local volunteers (led by Douglas Streed) and is completely free (but they do accept donations)!
