October 23, 2014Youth encouraged to sign up for Nov. 22 Horry Co. dove clinic
The S.C. Department of Natural Resources Take One Make One Program and the Quality Deer Management Association, Horry County “Sandlappers” Branch is offering aspiring young hunters the opportunity to learn more about dove hunting with a Dove Clinic on Nov. 22, 2014 in the Conway area.
The clinic will start at 7 a.m. with a morning dove hunt. Youth get a chance to practice their marksmanship skills while dove hunting. Only the first 10 registered will be able to attend the hunt. Youth must have Hunter Education in order to participate in the hunt.
At 9 a.m. the fun will begin. All 25 youth will be introduced to all the basic dove hunting skills needed for a successful dove hunt. Everything is hands on from dressing the bird, cooking and tasting, gear needed, and how to keep it legal with your local game warden.
The first 25 youth ages 10-17 who contact Jessica Gibson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (803) 734-4122 will be able to attend the clinic. We will confirm your attendance by email with further instructions. Only by confirmation from Jessica may you attend so respond quickly for a slot. There is no cost for clinic all you need do is register. Lunch will be provided at this event and parents/guardians are welcome to stay while their students participate.
