If the first choice hunt site applied for is full, we will try to accommodate with the second choice, if available. Due to COVID-19, participation will be limited to one parent/guardian per youth(s). Events will be held outdoors for the duration (approximately 2 – 7 pm). All participants will be required to wear masks when around persons that are not part of their family group. At times, event staff will have to get within close proximity of youth to supervise shooting activities. More specific event information will be provided after participants are selected.
