Safari Club International Salt Lake City, Utah Chapter 2016 Youth Pheasant Hunt   Salt Lake City, Utah chapter SCI is proud to have put on another successful youth pheasant hunt for 2016 This year we drew 18 lucky youth hunters, their names were drawn out of aprox 200-300 entries taken at our yearly fundraiser event and at the Western Hunting Expo where we had a membership drive booth in the main area and our Sensory Safari Trailer set up in the youth area of the show. The event was held on Nov 12th at Wasatch Wing & Clay in Eagle Mtn Utah. The morning of the event we woke up to cold rain but as we got ready to start the hunt the rain went away and it was great but muddy. We paired the youth 2 X 1 guide and dog. Each group had their parents or several parents, guardians, grandparents, sisters and brothers ETC and an SCI Utah chapter board member. Numerous groups brought their own dogs. Everyone reported a great time that they will not forget. Two groups teamed up together because of a guide and dog situation and also because their areas adjoined. They killed more than their fare share, but the rule was SAFETY FIRST AND ALWAYS but if it flies it dies. Every youth reported kills and a good time. They also learned those birds were not easy targets.   After the event lunch was catered we had chile bread bowls, salad, chips, drinks and plenty of food for everyone involved.   For many of the youth it was their first time to shoot at real targets and get to listen and learn from the guides and board members the history of the land and the conservation that allows the land and area to be available for them to have hunting opportunities and many more like this one. These youth are the future of preserving the land and our rights to hunt. I strongly believe SCI will see new memberships from this event from the adults and youth seeing firsthand what SCI is all about.   This year once again KSL Outdoors Channel 5 filmed this event and it was aired on Channel 5 Utah as one of their weekly shows. This will give Utah Chapter and SCI good visibility and recognition     We look forward to sponsoring this event each year and would love to have your youth involved in the event next year for 2017. They can sign up at our yearly banquet and fundraiser event at the Sheriton Hotel Salt Lake City March 18th 2017. Also they can sign up at the Western Hunting Expo at our Safari Sensory Trailer on display in the youth area of the show. Thanks for all the Utah chapter members and volunteers that attended and donated their time and money for this and other events.
