The Cumberland Chapter of the Quail and Upland Game Alliance held their annual youth pheasant hunt at Sandy Run Hunt Co. on January 28th. Almost forty kids participated in the hunt, shooting at nearly 700 clay targets and more than 80 pheasant. Except for a fairly strong wind the weather was picture perfect. This year the QUGA chapter bought all the birds for the hunt, getting the price per hunter down to just $10. The hunters ate all the chili I made and a pile of hotdogs. Most of the hunters were able to knock down at least one bird and if not they all went home with a door prize, full stomach and few less shells.
