. . . What exactly are they?
Ringnecks is the term used to describe youth members of Pheasants Forever. Ringnecks are youth who enjoy outdoor activities such as hunting, shooting sports, archery, photography, fishing, and gun dog handling; and who believe that they can make a difference in habitat conservation through educating other youth.
In addition, Ringneck members of Pheasants Forever serve as role models in their communities by promoting leadership, helping other youth to establish a connection with nature, and by educating their friends and families about the importance of habitat conservation.
If I become a Ringnecks member, what do I get to do?
The Pheasants Forever Ringnecks Program is dedicated to introducing youth to hunting, shooting sports and other outdoor activities as described above. As a Ringneck, you will be invited to participate in a host of activities including:
- Upland Game Bird Hunts for Youth Only - A hunt designed for youth only where you actually get to hunt live upland game birds such as quail, chukar and pheasant!
- Hunter Safety Courses - Designed especially for youth, and offered several times throughout the year.
- Hunting dog demo days - A chance to meet the different types of gun dogs used during upland game bird hunts, to learn about the commands used to control the dogs during a hunt, and a chance to actually watch the dogs working in the fields during an actual hunt.
- Sporting clay demo days - Learn all about shooting sporting clays including safety, proper hand grips, how to sight the target correctly and a chance to shoot on some of the best courses in the state.
- Pheasant Meet and Greet - Learn all about pheasants including their habitat, natural predators and lifecycle.
- And much more!
