The Rooster Booster Chapter of Pheasants Forever held its Seventh Annual Youth Clay Shoot and Pheasant Hunt on March 3.
The morning started out with a breakfast at Braums courtesy of Pheasants Forever. 
From Braums, the group went to Crosbys Wildgame Adventures where the kids were instructed on how to shoot clay targets by Jim Canfield and Jim Kellenberger. 
The clay targets and ammunition were donated by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism. 
The youth participants then were invited to join in a European style pheasant hunt hosted by Jason and Lance Crosby where they successfully harvested 78 out of 100 possible pheasants. 
Each participant received a hat, shirt, hunting vest, youth glasses and ammunition provided by Pheasants Forever.
The pheasant hunt is one thing the local chapter does each year with the money raised at the Annual Pheasants Forever Banquet for area youth.
The youth participants were Ryan Kohman, Adam Neeland, Kade Sander, Austin Jacobs, Cheyene Wiese, Denton Demel, Gage Miller, Cory Burnham, Ian Allen, Dillon Vsetecka and Logan Hammeke.
Pheasants Forever committee members that helped make the event possible were Jason Miller, Scot Moeder, Lynn Peterson, Charlie and Tanner Swank, Scott Heier, Bob Stiles and Gary Demel. 
The event was put on by the Great Bend Rooster Boosters Pheasants Forever Chapter.
