Ohio's Next Pheasant Hunters

Welcome to the next generation in conservation and pheasant hunting enthusiasts. In efforts to help our younger generation play a larger role in our efforts to conserve and provide habitat for upland game, our chapter provides today's youth with opportunities to learn about what Pheasants Forever is truly about. Ohio provides conservation educational materials, safety of firearms and mentor youth hunts for those kids who may not have the same opportunities as most. Take a moment and read about our youth events or find out how you can become a key component of helping future Pheasants Forever Members.

Youth Hunter Safety and Education

Youth Hunter Safety and Education

While we all like to have fun in the field and chase pheasants for miles, safety is one of the most important aspects. We promote and encourage hunter safety in the field. Through these classes and education we show both youth and adults the proper ways to hold, maneuver and proper gun care. Getting those who are not familiar with a gun, comfortable with handling their firearm so that they can enjoy their hunts successfully. For more information when or where our hunting safety classes can be found, please follow the links below.

PHEASANTS FOREVER SUPPORTS GUIDE TO SHOOTING SPORTS, FUTURE OF CONSERVATION

PHEASANTS FOREVER SUPPORTS GUIDE TO SHOOTING SPORTS, FUTURE OF CONSERVATION
Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever has supported the production of the Ultimate Youth Shooting Sports Guide – a comprehensive, introductory handbook for the world of shooting sports. Now available as an educational resource for up-and-coming shooters, the booklet covers all aspects of shooting sports and donates a portion of each sale to the Habitat Organization’s No Child Left Indoors® program.

Shooting sports – competitive sports that use firearms or airguns – are one of the fastest growing hobbies in the United States with over 19 million Americans who participate in target shooting, and an additional 20 to 40 million citizens who contribute as recreational shooters. Covering all facets of shooting sports from A-Z, the Ultimate Guide also provides a strong connection to hunting and conservation, helping to produce the next generation of conservationists through its ties to shooting, one of America’s oldest pastimes.

“Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever is proud of our chapter efforts to get kids outdoors and involved in shooting sports. We recognize shooting sports as being one of the most rapidly growing activities in schools throughout the country,” stated John Linquist, national outdoor skills coordinator for Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever. “To that end, we have partnered with Safari Club International and the Outdoor Kids Club/Miami Valley Outdoor Media, LTD to create the Ultimate Youth Shooting Sports Guide. This book is a perfect resource for not only conservation groups and chapters, but also schools and educators.”

Considerations for production of the Ultimate Youth Shooting Sports Guide included teaching kids the safe handling of firearms, interacting with national conservation organizations, and learning about the lifelong benefits which shooting sports can provide. “Creating responsible firearm users and linking youth to the world of conservation are the main drivers for this book. Whether kids are interested in joining a shooting team, experiencing upland hunting, or joining Team USA in the Olympics, the Ultimate Guide is the nation’s best resource for an introduction to shooting sports,” added Linquist.
