We had a soggy but successful Junior hunt in 2017. Mother nature made sure everyone went home wet! In spite of the rain the young hunters did quite well, with everyone limiting out. Thank you to the helpers who caught pheasants and stocked them. We hope to see everyone again next year!
Ontelaunee held our junior pheasant hunt on October 8th and 10th 2016 for kids age 12 to 16. Saturday we had 4 young hunters go out in groups of two and Monday we had six. We had 3 first time pheasant hunters and all three bagged their first pheasant! We have a very good bunch of hunters, everybody observed safety rules and the shooting was exceptional! (bad news for the pheasants, there were hardly any that got away!) Nobody left empty-handed and judging by the the ear to ear grins, it seemed like the boys enjoyed their day in the field. We are already looking forward to next year! Thank you to the helpers who helped supervise the kids, catch and stock birds, and volunteer their dogs to guide the hunt. Included are some photos of the successful hunters, good job guys!
