The Next Generation of Pheasant Hunters

Welcome to the next generation in conservation and pheasant hunting enthusiasts. In efforts to help our younger generation play a larger role in our efforts to conserve and provide habitat for upland game, our chapter provides today's youth with opportunities to learn about what Pheasants Forever is truly about. The Ringneck Rustlers Chapter provides conservation educational materials, safety of firearms and mentor youth hunts for those kids who may not have the same opportunities as most. Take a moment and read about our youth events or find out how you can become a key component of helping future Pheasants Forever Members.

Hunters Education Courses

Hunters Education Courses

A safe experience in the field starts with a certified Hunters Education course. Each year our chapter hosts several hunters education courses in the Sedgwick County area. These courses are affiliated with the State of Kansas hunters education program. We typically schedule at least one summer and one fall/winter course to offer as much opportunity during these peak demands for hunters education courses as possible. All of our available courses and other courses throughout the State of Kansas are listed through safehunters.com

First Hunts

First Hunts

Our chapter hosts multiple first hunts each year for youth and first time hunters of all ages to experience the field and pheasant hunting. No shotgun no problem, we have you covered! Our courses start out with an introduction to shotgun shooting where certified shooting instructors get new hunters consistently breaking clay targets from a fixed trap machine. We then introduce them to the wobble trap and proper shotgun carry, shoulder, and safe shot techniques. New hunters then get bring all the safety and shooting skills together under a controlled pheasant hunt with accompanying mentors. After hopefully harvesting a few pheasants participants are shown how to clean birds and prep them for a meal. If you know a new hunter that would like to attend one of our first hunt events please get in contact with us!

High School Trap and Sporting Clays

High School Trap and Sporting Clays

Our chapter proudly supports many local high school trap and youth clay target leagues.  Without our chapter sponsorships many teams would have to limit participation and practice due to the price of ammunition and clay targets.  Clay target shooting is a fantastic way to not just hone your shooting skills but also provides an introduction to safe gun handling and the outdoors.  Every youth team is also offered the chance to join us on a first hunt to bring along their shotgun skills into the uplands for an experience that retains new hunters.
