Anoka County Pheasants Forever Youth Day

7 posts in this topic

We will be hosting our 8th annual Youth Activity Day on Saturday, August 26th, at Beaverbrook Gun Club in Cedar, MN (think East Bethel if you don't know where Cedar is). This event is FREE to kids. We will feed them lunch, give them a Tshirt and let them partake in the following activities:

Trap shooting

.22 rilfe shooting

Pellet gun shooting

Archery

Orienteering

Shoot/Don't Shoot course

Blood Trail

Casting demonstrations and contests

Muzzleloader demos

Dog demos (pretty sure on this one, haven't confirmed yet)

Trapping demos

Live Raptors from the MN Raptor Center

Ducks-on-a-Stick from the USFWS

Conservation Officer and K9 officer

Camping essentials

and more.

We are really trying to get kids there who have not had a chance to experience these type of activities. By making it free and getting the word out, we hope to have well over 200 kids (we had 185 last year). I would like to ask a few things from you folks.....

1. Let me know if our advertising reaches you and how (so we can evaluate the $$ we stick into advertising)

2. Pass the word about the event. I have a flyer is anyone is interested in it.

3. If you can, load up a carload of kids and bring them to the event, and lastly....

4. If anyone would like to volunteer either their time to help at the event, or merchandise to give to the kids or $$ to help pay for 20 ga shells, let me know.

I brought my son to this event last year he had a blast. This is a very well planned event for kids. I would recommend this to all of you with children. We can't make it this year we've got another wedding to go to out of town. CodyDawg and the rest of the guys that put this on deserve a big pat on the back.

Thanks birdswacker.

Doesnt seem to be a lot of interest in Youth Day on here this year. Last year there sure was. I had offers of people helping and everything else. Oh well. It is gonna be a fun day for the kids and you can't beat the pricetag (FREE)! Load up the minivan folks and bring a carload. They will all get Tshirts, lunch, and the opportunity to do a lot of activities. Kids just love to shoot and here is a great chance for them to shoot a lot of different things under a controlled environment.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
