DU Youth Skeet Shoot-Sept 6th write-up

Beausejour & Area Ducks Unlimited 

Ducks Unlimited conducted a Youth Skeet Shoot at the Brokenhead River Game and Fish Association Range on September 6th, 2017. This event was for youths (11-16 yrs). Pre-registration was made easy via email through Robyn at the Ducks Unlimited office. No experience was needed and this skeet shoot provided an excellent opportunity to get ready for Hunting Season. National Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Heritage Day is September 16, 2017.

Greenwing programs coordinator Chris Benson supplied a handful of shotguns although all youths were encouraged to bring their own if they had one. Chris ran a safe handling and operation of firearms course prior to the event. He was the main spotter for each youth who shot from a safe zone. He instructed them as well as reminded them of safe handling which resulted in every single youth to hit the clay targets while emphasizing their safe handling of firearms. 9 of these youths were novices. Chris also supplied enough shells for all 11 youths to shoot approximately 30 rounds each with some low recoil shots for first time shotgunners. Skeet was supplied by Ducks Unlimited. The novices were hesitant at first but after the first round all were keen to skeet shoot after that. It was exciting to see those clays getting a direct hit and shatter in the air. Some waterfowl education and duck calling demonstrations were also provided. Free skeets, free shots, free food, free hats & duck calls – what youth wouldn’t like that! This was a great confidence builder for all.

The BBQ consisting of hot dogs and drinks was provided by Brokenhead River Game and Fish Association. Ducks Unlimited provided hats and duck calls to each participant after the BBQ.

Many thanks to DU Darren Zalusky who organized this event. Thanks also to DU Brad Porath for his support and for running the clay throwers. Other key supporters helping to organize and coordinate the shoot were Allen Hunnie, Ken Molinski, Tammy Molinski, Brett Steffes and Duane Zieske. Couldn’t have done this without all of you.
