Forever Shooting Sports

Ammo Grants

Ammunition for youth shooting events is expensive, so Tri-County Pheasants Forever Chapter has created an Ammo Grant program for local High School Trap Teams to apply for Ammo Grants.

T.U.N.E. Camp

T.U.N.E. camp is a program of Pheasants Forever with support of partner Trout Unlimited. Come to T.U.N.E. camp and experience fun activities like archery, high ropes, rifle range, trap shooting, orienteering, outdoor survival skills, campfires, night hikes, canoeing and more!

"Last Fall I was lucky enough to go on a hunt with Pheasants forever and fell in love. One thing I noticed during the hunt is all the prairie grass that they had put there for the pheasants. I was thankful for this because it brought more birds but I never quite understood just what it did. Then I got a scholarship from Tri-County Pheasants Forever to go to Tune camp. We did all sorts of amazing things from canoeing, trap shooting, and even things like beekeeping. There was one thing that stood out though during those days. In between all the amazing activities there were presentations on different things, even prairie grass. What I learned about these amazing grasses is that they used to cover 250 million acres of North America and helped the earth by being able to absorb nine inches of rain per acre. Helping erosion and soil, literally holding the earth together. It changed the way I look at what the point of Pheasants Forever does when they restore these places. I can't thank Tri-County Pheasants Forever enough for all they have done for me."

Sincerely, Matt Willits, 13 years old, Byron High School

Outdoor Mentor Program

Tri-County Minnesota Pheasants Forever Chapter is dedicated to introducing and supporting area youth in conservation, shooting sports, hunting, and sense of community. We hold an annual Mentor Hunt, taking local youth and women out to shoot trap and pheasant hunt. This event is a great event for them to learn, share stories, and become hooked on being outdoors.

Annual DNR/PF Mentor Hunt

Every year the DNR and Pheasants Forever Chapters in Minnesota partner to hold youth & women hunts around the state. We have been proud to get to know our area youth & women. This event is important to allow youth & women the chance to hunt, who might not have a person/mentor in their life to teach them of hunting, habitat, conservation, and outdoor sporting activities.
