Women's Educational Pheasant Hunt 1/16/11

Registrations are being accepted for the next Educational Pheasant Hunt sponsored by the New Jersey Quail Project. While female and younger hunters are encouraged -- all hunters who are looking to learn about hunting over pointer dogs are welcome to apply. The hunt is limited to 20 hunters. This is truly an educational experience and not meant for hunters who regularly hunt for upland birds whether over dogs or not.

The day may start early but is full of activities, education and great food! Here's the informal agenda for the day:

  • Gathering and breakfast @ 7:30 AM
  • Welcome, Safety Talk and Overview of the Day
  • Off to the traphouse for some practice
  • Hunting in the field with a mentor, guide and dog
  • Lunch at the Club house
  • Back out in the field for afternoon hunt
  • Meet at the Clubhouse for tagging and cleaning the birds
  • Departure about 4:30 PM

Attached you will find a registration form with additional information. All hunters must have a 2011 NJ Hunting License, require amount of safety orange, and their own eye and ear protection. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. However, I am smack dab in the middle of about a dozen projects; so, please be patient with me. I promise I will get back to you.

Sponsorship and donations in support of these educational programs are accepted. Friends or family attending with young hunters will be asked for a donation to cover their meals. Pola Galie and Mike Mazzucco, co-chairs. Reservations/Registrations are REQUIRED.

Special Thanks to the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife, New Jersey Outdoor Alliance Environmental Projects/NJ Quail Project, English Setter Club Directors and Members and our volunteers - mentors, dogs and our Camp Cook, Ed Gerber!
