Women's Pheasant Hunt

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, click on the Education tab to get to the Education Home Page, click on “Special Hunts” then click on “Special Hunts Calendar” or by contacting Karen Keen at 215-721-8732 or [email protected]. Upon receipt of complete registration including payment and forms, participants will receive a confirmation letter.

Twenty participants will be accepted on a first come first serve basis. Fee for participation is $20 and must be submitted by 9/01/10 to reserve your space. Checks may be written out to Pheasant Valley Farm and be mailed to Karen Keen 820 Princeton Place, Hatfield, PA 19440. If registering online please download the waiver and medical form, complete and submit along with the check. If registering by mail, these forms will be sent to you with your confirmation letter.

More information on Pheasant Valley Farm, including directions, can be obtained at http://pheasantvalleyfarm.com/ .



Ladies! Please join us for a great day

in the field hunting pheasants!

Re: Women's Pheasant Hunt

I would just like to take the time to thank Pheasant Valley Farms, The PA State Game Commission, Cabelas and all of the folks that came out to mentor and guide us at the pheasant hunt today. I had the time of my life! I cannot begin to put into words what this experience has done for me. My intentions were to go to the pheasant hunt to learn. Imagine my surprise when I actually bagged some birds! I learned about pheasants, dogs, and how to clean my own birds. This has truly been one of the happiest days of my life! Thank you Karen Keen, Mark Wolfskill, Harold from Cabelas, Jeff Souders and every person that was involved in making today a special day for me! It was extremely hot out today and they kept us all motivated! I cannot begin to thank you all enough! I am already looking forward to my next Pheasant hunt! Kudos to you all!


Why is it that I would rather smell like wet dirt and worms than blueberry body wash?

A moment of a lifetime! It was so cool that we are going back 10/9 with our youngest to do it again!
