The hunt is held in memory of Darrell Brown and Lavern Stieben
HAYS – It’s easy to let a hectic schedule get in the way of making time for the outdoors, and. There is no cost to participate.
The hunt will take place at Hays City Sportsman Club, 5810 230th Ave., Hays, where each hunter will have the opportunity to harvest at least four birds while hunting over experienced pointing dogs.
Apart from the hunt, participants will also learn about hunting with pointing dogs; field safety; how hunting dogs are trained; gun handling; how to clean and prepare birds; and what makes good upland bird habitat. The D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program will also be incorporated into the event.
Special hunts such as this are part of Pass It On, KDWPT’s hunter recruitment and retention program. This program addresses the need to recruit new hunters and retain existing hunters to ensure the future of hunting.
For more information, and to register for this hunt, contact Shayne Wilson at (785) 628-1415, through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
