Prowers County Youth Pheasant Hunting Clinic

LAMAR, Colo. – Youth ages 10 to 15 are invited to learn about pheasant hunting in an organized hunt at the Mike Higbee State Wildlife Area, Saturday, Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the Lamar-based Rebel Roosters chapter of Pheasants Forever sponsor the event. Participants must have a hunter education card and small game license to hunt. An adult guardian must accompany each youth hunter. The day’s activities include a short course on pheasant hunting 101, safety refresher, practice with clay targets, lunch and an afternoon pheasant hunt.

“The lessons we teach are about ethical, safe hunting,” said Linda Groat, an education specialist for Parks and Wildlife.” 

Parks and Wildlife will supply youth-size shotguns or families can bring their own. Hunters wishing to use their own shotguns must have the guns inspected by a wildlife officer before the hunt.

Space is limited to 25 participants. Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis until the hunt fills. Contact Linda Groat at 719-336-6608 or Kevin Kaczmarek 719-940-3590 to register. 

The Mike Higbee State Wildlife Area is located four miles east of Lamar on Highway 50.
