Youth Group Program

The next meeting should be December 15th. As soon as Dick Elliott lets me know what it is, I will post it.

Here is a picture from all that took part in our 2022 Youth Pheasant Hunt, held at Brian Skeval’s farm on Pompey Center Rd. A huge “Thank you” goes out to Dick Elliott, Todd Fillinger, Dake Esposito, CR Haaf & his dog Winston. This would not have been possible without them.

Here we are talking about wild turkey biologyand hunting

The objective of the Youth Group is to introduce boys and girls to knowledge and skills related to various outdoor subjects and activities. We have typically held monthly evening meetings at the Club House (with occasional weekend outside activity or field trip)at which a subject will be discussed by some knowledgeable person. The following is a summary of subjects we have done in the past. Most of these could be repeated and additional subjects could be presented.
