Hunter Safety Courses

Hunter Safety Courses

While we all like to have fun in the field and chase pheasants for miles, safety is one of the most important aspects. We promote and encourage hunter safety in the field. Hunter education classes show both youth and adults the proper way to hold, maneuver and practice proper gun care. We at Iowa believe it is essential for kids to become familiar with gun operation and be comfortable with handling their firearm. For more information on our youth hunts, please contact us through our website.

Each year Mahaska County Pheasants Forever has a fundraising banquet. This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to get together and support the habitat and education mission of the chapter.

Because of Pheasants Forever's unique model, all the funds raised at this event will remain under the control of the local chapter committee! This is a key element in allowing the local chapter to accomplish mission locally, and exclusive to Pheasants Forever!

Mentor Hunts with Chapter Members

Mentor Hunts with Chapter Members

We pair mentors with inexperienced hunters in a hunt for live pheasants in a controlled environment. Participants receive shooting tips, dog training instructions and a chance to shoot live pheasants. All of the young hunters learned some of the finer skills of upland game hunting from our staff. Mahaska County Pheasants Forever is honored to carry on the passion for teaching the next generation of hunters.
