MO – HUNTING – Mdc’s Busch Shooting Range Holds Beginning Pheasant Clinics And Hunt In February

The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is creating an opportunity for both adults and youths to discover upland gamebird hunting at the Beginning Youth Pheasant Hunt and Clinic. The staff at MDC’s August A. Busch Shooting Range and Outdoor Education Center in Defiance is putting on two virtual Upland Bird Hunting Clinics for beginners in February. One is geared for adults age 16 and up, and the other for youths age 11-15. They will be followed by a mentored pheasant hunt, so participants can put their new skills into practice. Both clinics will take place on Monday, Feb. 8 from 6-7:30 p.m. via WebEx. They are free online events, but advanced registration is required using the following links: Adult Upland Bird Hunting Clinic, https://short.mdc.mo.gov/ZEh; Youth Upland Bird Hunting Clinic, https://short.mdc.mo.gov/ZEy. This virtual clinic will teach the basics of upland hunting with emphasis on ring-necked pheasants. “We’ll also cover some biology, firearm handling, and how to clean the birds. We’ll even give participants some recipes to help them prepare the pheasants for eating,” said MDC Busch Outdoor Education Center Manager Bryant Hertel. The clinic is mandatory to attend the hunt and it is preferred the attendees are hunter education certified. Hunters should also be comfortable with handling a shotgun. The hunt and clinic are open to first-time attendees only.  [full article]
