Hunting

We are having a Squirrel hunt for first time youth hunters, 10-15 years old in age on Friday August 23rd of an evening and Saturday August 24th in the morning, you need to be there for both days. Friday, August 23rd we will have a classroom portion over the basic equipment, regulations, and how to hunt to them. We will also have firearm safety talk and shooting lesson. Saturday morning is the day of the hunt, you will be assigned a Missouri Department of Conservation mentor/volunteer and an area to hunt. After the hunt we will demonstrate on how to clean and prepare a Squirrel for cooking.

We will provide the guns and ammunition for the shooting lesson and for the hunt. Guardians of the youth hunters are allowed and welcome to go hunting with them but understand an MDC mentor/volunteer will still be assigned to the youth hunter.

Items the hunter will need to bring are dark color clothing and footwear suitable to be worn in the outside elements, woods, brush etc. Bug spray and a thermacell for mosquito repellent if you have one.
