Youth Hunters Invited to a Guided Pheasant Hunt at Mike Higby State Wildlife Area

Colorado Parks Wildlife Logo - smLAMAR, Colo. – Colorado public lands arguably provide some of the best pheasant hunting opportunities in the west. If you are, or know a young person who is interested in learning the sport, Colorado Parks and Wildlife will be hosting a guided pheasant hunt for youths between the ages of 10 and 17 at Mike Higby State Wildlife area, east of Lamar, on Nov. 7th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event, which along with CPW is sponsored by the Lamar Chapter of Pheasants Forever and R&R Game Birds, aims to introduce a new generation of hunters to the unique challenges and joys of pheasant hunting.

CPW will provide shotguns and ammo, and will guide youths in small teams on the hunt through the state wildlife area. Youths can enjoy other stations such as archery, trap and tracks while awaiting their turn to hunt. Lunch will also be provided.

Participants will need to already have their Hunter Education Card and 2015 Youth Small Game License.

Registration is limited to the first 25 youths to sign up, and a waiting list of up to 10 will be kept, should a spot open up. Hunters must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

For more information, contact Kevin Kaczmarek at (719) 940-3590.
