MDC & Partners Offer Special Youth Hunting Clinic
Youth with terminal or chronic illnesses will have an opportunity to participate in a hunting clinic and mentored deer hunt this fall, through a unique partnership. The Missouri Department of Conservation is partnering with Missouri Disabled Sportsmen, the Outdoor Dream Foundation, and others to offer this program.
The clinic will take place 3:30–8:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 29, in Unionville. Participants will learn about deer biology and habitat, hunting safety and shooting skills, ammunition and firearm selection, methods, and regulations. Over the weekend, youth will head afield for a mentored deer hunt.
MDC and partners will provide meals, track chairs for those with mobility limitations, all necessary equipment, and staff to assist.
Space is limited for this clinic and hunt.
Participants must register no later than Oct. 16 at mdc-event-web.s3licensing.com/Event/EventDetails/179514. Applicants will receive formal application paperwork following their online registration.
Applicants must be no older than 21-years of age by Oct. 29, 2021. Participants ages 16-years and older will hunt using archery methods.
