Youth Pheasant Hunt This Weekend September 24th 25th 2011

There will be a youth hunt this weekend at Joint Base Lewis McChord for youth under the age of 15 years.  All participants must have their Western Washington Pheasant license and be pre-registered at JBLM's Northwest Adventure Center to hunt on base. 

To register you will need to clear through the main gate off I-5, showing current vehicle registration, driver's license and proof of insurance.  Then proceed to Northwest Adventure Center with current Washington State Hunting License.  All participants must have their weapons registered at the NAC as well.  You will need to bring information on make, model number, serial number, gauge, length of barrel and overall length.

On Saturday and Sunday, hunters and handlers will meet at 7 am at either Training Area 14 or TA 21 for an organization and safety meeting.

At 8:00 am hunters and dogs with handlers will organize and begin hunting.  There will be volunteers on hand with seasoned hunting dogs to help out if needed.  Remember to bring your camera!  For more information, call the Northwest Adventure Center at 253.967.6263

Kate Johansson of Fast Pup Dog Training will be meeting anyone needing help finding the sign-in area of TA 14 at 6:45 am at the Roy Y Park & Ride.  Call her at 253.569.0411 to let her know you will meet her there, or just call for general directions.  Colored maps of the training areas of JBLM are available for $2.00 at the NAC.
