The Red Rose Chapter of the Izaak Walton League held our 15th annual youth pheasant hunt yesterday. We had 21 kids participating. Almost all went home with at least one bird. We provided enough birds so that all kids could take 2 if they could hit them and a few extras to try to give those who missed another opportunity. We fed the kids and parents a lunch consisting of a whole deer roasted on a spit with all the trimmings. A good tme was had by all.
Whisky on point:

Lunch, Dutch and our Club President were at the club at 5oam to get this on the fire.
We get some from a youth field day and some by putting the names of kids who score 100% on their hunter ed course into a drawing and some by word of mouth. We are at our limit of the number of kids we can handle on our property right now.
