Triple Threat – Cole Martin (11), McCoy Kurkrow (10), and Eli Jackson (11) all had a successful hunt.

“I never shot a shotgun, and I never shot a clay target,” confirmed 10-year-old Neveah Widener, but she soon found herself doing both before heading to the designated hunting areas where guides and dogs awaited to take youth age 10-18 hunting for game birds.

The March event hosted by Young Outdoorsmen United gave 30 youth the opportunity to experience dogs searching and pointing their quarry, witnessing flushing quail, pheasants, and chucker, plus test their wing-shooting skills.

When Widener returned from her hunt she was carrying a bobwhite quail, and a roster pheasant.

“I did it, I shot some birds” she loudly exclaimed with a beaming smile. “That was so much fun.”
