Youth Group Program

The next meeting will be Thursday, April 20, 7pm in the clubhouse. Topic will be Turkey hunting & biology. Just in time for turkey season!! Come and learn from our lifetime club member expert Dick Elliott. He has years of valuable experience and can teach your kids a thing or 2!

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 last year (2022)

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.

Muzzle Loader Shooting

Reloading (Shot Shell & Rifle)

We hope that a new generation of boys and girls will start participating and that a group of parents will help continue this club sponsored activity. Please call Dick Elliott at (315)655-9847 if you have any questions, suggestions or wish to help.
