Registration for Iowa DNR Hunter Education Classes

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. If you are interested in enrolling yourself or your child in the Iowa hunter education course, please click the link below.

Mentor Hunts with Chapter Members

Mentor Hunts with Chapter Members

We pair mentors with inexperienced youth hunters in a hunt for live pheasants in a controlled environment. Participants received 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. Linn County Pheasants Forever is honored to carry on the passion for teaching the next generation of hunters.

Youth Hunts

Youth Hunts

The future of our sport rely on the efforts of those generations younger than us. To help promote those efforts and educate youth in the importance of what Pheasants Forever, we host an annual hunt, showcasing why our organization is important, but at the same time having some fun with our leaders of tomorrow. In 2018, we hope to schedule a youth hunting opportunity for our chapter. Stay tuned!
