Just a follow up on the Women's Pheasant Hunt in Bird's Landing, CA....
The hunting camp hosted by California Waterfowl Assoc. (www.calwaterfowl.org
) had 9 new gals complete their hunter safety course and received their first hunting license/upland stamps. Way to go ladies! The first day was the hunters' safety course and clay target practice.
The second day featured a pheasant hunt with dogs and handlers. We had 3 groups of 3 hunters each. Almost every hunter shot at least one bird that morning! The hunt was followed by a BBQ and a Q&A session, as well as the opportunity to check out some different hunting gear made especially for women.
Thank you to California Waterfowl Association, Bird's Landing Hunting Preserve and Sporting Clays (www.birdslanding.net
), and all the volunteers. What a great way to introduce more women to the amazing sport of wingshooting!
My first pheasants with help from Alice (a Large Munster Lander with incredible stamina!).
