GLEN ELDER — On Dec. 19, the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) and Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors, Inc., are sponsoring a pheasant hunt for youth and women at Glen Elder Reservoir. Hunters will be selected from applicants, and as many as 60 may participate. The event will begin early on Saturday, Dec. 19, with a hunter breakfast and safety meeting, then groups will move to various areas around Glen Elder Reservoir and hunt until noon. Lunch will be provided for hunt participants.

A free trap shoot will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. just west of the Glen Elder Area Office. The trap shoot is open to anyone interested in attending but is targeted toward beginning shooters. Several “hero-celebrities” (military personnel recently returned from Iraq or Afghanistan) are expected to participate as mentors.

Women of any age and youth ages 11 through 16 are eligible to apply for this event. Hunting experience is not required, and shotguns and ammunition will be provided, if needed.
