Event: 2015 Headwaters Youth Hunt
The Headwaters 563 Chapter of Pheasants Forever held their 2015 upland bird youth hunt on Saturday, September 26 at the Canyon Ferry Wildlife Management Area. Justin Feddes, the Townsend Area game Warden for the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks Department was on hand to talk the the young hunters prior to the morning hunt. Excited kids, their parents, bird dogs and the dog handlers were soon scouring the fields looking for one of Montana's premier game birds. For most of the youths, this was their first opportunity to hunt upland birds and the anticipation was evident in their faces. Several youths were fortunate to bag birds on what turned out to be a classic fall day in Montana. Pictured is 12-year old Violet Opitz and Dakota. Dakota is owned and handled by Randy Piearson, President of the Headwaters PF Chapter. While Violet will participate in many more hunting days in the field with her father John Opitz, she will always treasure the memories of her very first pheasant.
