The Hettinger County 4-H Youth Pheasant Hunt Day was held Saturday, Nov. 2nd.
Published November 8, 2013
The hunt was the culmination for the participants of the 4-H summer shooting sports program in Hettinger County.
Events for the day began with a Carmel Roll breakfast at the Pheasant Café for the seven 4-H member participants and their parents along with 4-H shooting sports instructors. A quick safety lecture and out to the field for some successful hunting.
Taken in the hunt were 11 birds by the kids and their parents. The instructors then aided the youth in dressing and cleaning the birds which were then distributed to the families.
Following the hunt everyone went to the 4-H trap shooting grounds for a contest in trap shooting. The divisions were Junior, Senior and Adult. After a 50 shot contest Teddy Mayer came out on top for the Juniors with a score of 40. In the Senior division Josh Wallace was the winner with a 41 and in the 4H Instructors and parents group, Orin Hardmeyer came out best with a score of 47.
The Hettinger County 4-H Shooting Sports Program has been a great opportunity for youth to hone their hunting skills and have a lot of safe family fun. To this end we of the Hettinger County 4-H program would like to say thank you to those who have supported us through the year of 2013.
