Pheasants Forever plan trip to LaGrange
September 28, 2017
Pheasants and youths come together. November 11, 2017, Texas Trail Ringnecks will be traveling to Lagrange for a work shop, along with Hidden Pines Retriever Club.
Texas Trail Ringnecks is just one of the local groups in the Pheasants Forever chapter. High Plains is the adult group. Youth must be a 7th grader to begin participating and are allowed to stay in the group until the summer after graduation. Participates learn hunter safety, working with bird dogs and general group hunt skills. The local group is always looking for adult volunteers to work with the youth.
Pheasants Forever is a national organization with approximately 750 chapters. Membership dues and fundraisers are part of the financial contributors to keep the organizations going. Partnership with the Game and Fish Department, Soil Conservation are some of the benefits of the organization.
Pheasants are not common in our local area; however Dean Bowman (Local 18 year member) shared that with some tree planting, food plots, water guzzler installed. It could bring the pheasants to our area.
Water guzzler, are tanks buried to collect rain or snow with steps down so the wild life can get to the water. These could be done in gulleys, washed out areas, or in sprinkler corners of the many fields around the area to help the wild life.
