The Game Bird Heritage Program provides educational hunts with pen-raised pheasants that provide beginning hunters with a controlled, educational and safe environment to learn hunting skills and further develop hunter safety and a sense of hunter ethics and wildlife management. Events include gun safety review, easy-to-hunt topography and a high ratio of volunteers to hunters, with some venues featuring experienced dog handlers and clay shooting among other educational activities.
