Outdoors Art for Sept. 8

A major contributing factor in the rise of popularity in shotgun sports is growing number of women participating at both shooting ranges and in the field hunting upland birds.

If the number of women participating in shooting sports is a major contributor in the outdoors sports holding their own, then surly programs such as the National Rifle Association-sponsored Youth Hunter Education Challenge is meeting the obligation to assure the future of those sports.

Again this year, the partnership between Cabela’s, the Lehigh Valley Chapter of Safari Club International and the Pennsylvania Game Commission is sponsoring a women’s-only pheasant hunt at Pheasant Valley Farm, Robesonia, Friday, Oct. 11, beginning with check in at 8:30 a.m. All participants must be a minimum of 18 years old and present a Hunter/Trapper Education Course Card or a current Pennsylvania hunting license at check-in.
