Title:
Hunter Safety Camp at Wapsi Center
Description:
This is a 3-day course starting at 7pm Friday, 6/24 through 5pm Sunday, 6/26. Standard hunter safety courses are 10 hours long. In this event, we will go far beyond the basics. In addition to all of the hunter education standards, we will be teaching advanced shooting techniques, bowhunter safety, trapping, waterfowl, turkey and raccoon hunting, dog training, caring for game in the field, first aid, wildlife ID, calling and a whole lot more! All these activities will allow students to actually participate, not just listen to speakers or watch films. The course is open to kids, age 11-16. They don't need to have received the Hunter Education Certificates already. Cost per student is $20 for dorm stay, meals, ammo and targets thanks to donations from Clinton County Pheasants Forever ($500), Scott County Pheasants Forever ($500), Clinton Area Whitetails Unlimited ($200); plus donations from Clinton CCB and Grand Mound Sportsmen's Club. Overnight chaperones will be provided by participants' parents. Space is limited to 50 kids, so sign up early by calling (563) 847-7202.
