The Missouri Department of Conservation, in partnership with Missouri Disabled Sportsmen, will offer a mobility-impaired and youth pheasant hunt Feb. 17 near Centertown.
The 15th annual Batchel & Henry Pheasant Hunt will offer mobility-impaired and youth hunters an opportunity to shoot clay birds, interact with MDC employees, shoot in a continental-style hunt, enjoy lunch and a raffle, and finish the day hunting birds behind trained dogs, according to an MDC new release.
MDC and MDS will provide hunting dogs, field guides and track chairs to assist hunters. MDC’s track chairs are wheelchairs outfitted with treaded tracks that allow for control and stability, providing access to the outdoors in all types of terrain.
Meals will be provided, and firearms and ammunition will be available to those who need them.
Event check-in will begin at 7:30 a.m. The event will start at 8 a.m. and run until approximately sunset.
This event is free, but participants must apply by Jan. 31 to be considered for the hunt.
