Here is an attatchment from an email I received. Sounds like a great time. I should be there with one of my dogs to guide a hunt.
Pheasant Valley Farm is proud to announce our first annual Women's Pheasant hunt!
Pheasant Valley Farm is committed to maintaining Pennsylvania’s outdoor heritage, wildlife conservation, and hunting traditions. We believe in order to maintain this valued way of life, today’s women must be allowed the opportunity to gain hunting experience and learn about Pennsylvania’s rich hunting heritage. With that goal in mind, Pheasant Valley Farm in conjunction with the PA Game Commission and other conservation oriented groups would like to offer twenty women the opportunity to participate in a non-profit women’s hunt on Friday, September 24, 2010 at our preserve in Robesonia, PA which is located west of Reading.
The day will begin with check in at 8:45 am, followed by a safety lesson over coffee and donuts at 9:00. At 9:30, the participants will practice their shooting skills by shooting clay targets. The field hunts will begin at 10:30. There will be five groups of four hunters. Each group will have their own guide and dog, to locate and retrieve the birds, and a mentor to help facilitate the hunt. At 12:30, the groups will meet for lunch provided and prepared by PVF proprietor Mark Wolfskill. Following lunch and reflections, participants will have the opportunity to go back out into the field to hunt and/or to learn how to clean their birds.
All participants must be over 18 years old and present a Hunter/Trapper Education Course Card or a current PA. Hunting License at check-in. Registration can be completed online at http://www.pgc.state.pa.us,
