|Youth Hunting off to a Great Start!||posted 28 Oct 2012|
Our first Youth Hunt of the year took place Sunday 28 Oct 2012 and officially kicked off the season ! Fifty birds were tagged, released and the day begun. The hunting and safety plan was presented to kids, parents & club members by Sam and Wayne before we headed out to the fields. Participants lined up at the edge of the field with parents and club members behind. It wasn't long before the pheasants took off -- one by one. During the first pass, over half a dozen or so were taken with some good shots fired. Yes, some birds got away but the kids did great! After lining up and walking the second field, several more birds were taken. Then, it was off to the club house for a break in the action.
A second group was formed and the hunt continued in earnest. Right away, the dogs picked up a rooster near the shooting range -- likely one that got away during the first hunt and landed near the edge of the tree line. Controlling their approach, the hunters let "Bud" work the area and he quickly stirred one up. "Mike", however, had the bird dead reckoned and took him out straight away.
Perhaps the highlight of the day, "Sophie" fetched up and began to point -- keeping a rooster in her sites while the line positioned itself for the shot. The dog behaved in perfect text book fashion when her owner gave the command and the bird took flight. What a vision to see! Alas, it was not meant to be as the bird veered sharply back over the line to make good its escape.
Fifteen birds were taken during the event and a great hunt for all those who participated. Thirty-Five birds made their way to join the area wildlife -- properly tagged, though a few may remain to be picked up at a later date.
|WCSA Youth Day a Great Success!||posted 15 Sep 2012|
Oliver Goldsmith once said, "People seldom improve when they have no other model but themselves to copy after." Well, it was the best of times and a LOT of hard work by many WCSA members but the 2012 Youth Day was a great time and a great model for all!
A sunny day with gentle breezes, we had our largest group to date! New to our host of events, we had a great turn out for our fishing station. Moreover, kids enjoyed throwing axes and atlatls while others practiced their archery skills shooting fish in a home made pond. And always a favorite, many turned out for Shotgun Trap Shooting and Firearm safety at our Rifle Marksmanship Training Range.
All involved admired the many varieties of fish created by the kids inside the meeting hall. Then, lunch was served at noon and enjoyed by both kids and parents!
Afterward, it was back to the many station events to finish up the afternoon.
Last but not least, folks jumped in line and enjoyed our Fish Fry Dinner -- relaxing after a great day of fun! In all, over 96 registered youths participated and each child received a T-shirt, hat and a fishing pole. Thank you to all those who helped.
