Ben Avery Clay Busters - Ladies' Upland Bird Hunting Coming Up!
What is the next step in training women who shoot shotguns? Why bird hunting, of course!
November 15, 2014
As a special event for ladies who love shotgun sports, the Ben Avery Clay Busters (BACB) will be hosting a pheasant and chukar hunt on Sunday, Feb. 8 in Mayer, Ariz., at the YMCA High Desert Hunt Club.
This program will introduce 18 women to upland bird hunting, specifically pheasant and chukars, and it is funded through a Sportsmen's Group Grant by the Arizona Fish and Game Commission to make America's favorite hunting pastime more obtainable for more women shooters.
A pre-event hunter's education and safety program will precede the hunt and will give the huntresses an opportunity to meet their fellow hunt companions and hunt guides.
Hunt guides and their well-trained pointing dogs will be provided by volunteers from the Arizona Pointing Dog Club. Birds will be cleaned by the YMCA High Desert Hunt Club and ready for that special, gourmet pheasant dinner that the successful huntresses will be able to provide from the hunt.
Reserve your spot now (or tell a friend), as this will be limited to the first women who apply. Costs to participants will include their own personal transportation (carpooling encouraged), tips to the bird handlers at the YMCA High Desert Hunt Club and to hunt guides and their dogs.
