2015 Youth Pheasant Hunt QUGA Sandy Run Hunt Co.

The Cumberland Chapter of the Quail and Upland Game Alliance and Sandy Run Hunt Co.  held their annual Youth Pheasant Hunt, January 24.  We had 38 kids participate, shooting over 700 clay pigeons, hunting 76 pheasants, and consuming 3 gallons of chili and countless hotdogs.  We started the hunt at the north end of the Tinkerfarm, stocking the milo strips with pheasants.  The hunters did well there and when the ground thawed we moved to the Clubhouse Field to finish the afternoon.  The sunny, windy day had the birds up and moving around, but most of the hunters got a couple of opportunities at their pheasants.
