Event: 2019 Heroes Hunt

The VETERAN'S HEROES HUNT is hosted by Iowa's Linn County Pheasants Forever Chapter #45 will take place on Sunday, October 20 at Highland Hideaway Hunting in Riverside! 

- The Heroes Hunt registration is open only to veterans, who have not participated in the hunt in the past 
- And all veterans are invited to participate in sporting clay (even if you have participated in the hunt in the past) 

Those participating in the hunt will be assisted by professional guides with their gundogs. No personal gundogs will be permitted in the field. All participants will be treated to a Highland Hideaway lunch and have an opportunity to win raffle prizes that support Linn County Pheasants Forever habitat projects. All hunters must be able to walk in tall grass over a rough terrain. All selected participants will be Veterans, are required to possess a valid Iowa hunting license and be a current member of Pheasants Forever. A Pheasants Forever annual membership costs only $35 and includes a member card, window decal and five issue subscription to the Pheasants Forever Journal magazine. (Licenses and the Pheasants Forever memberships can be purchased at Highland Hunting the day of the event.) Veterans/Hunters must provide their own shotgun and it is required that you wear blaze orange and eye protection. Ammunition will be provided and distributed by your field guide. While Veterans who have hunted in previous hunts will not be eligible to hunt, they will be able to participate in the Sporting Clay event. 

Applications can be processed in two ways: 1. online or 2. by printing and submitting via email or mail.

The two application methods can be accessed through this event page. The online version (link is here & below) or by using the printed application (attachment is in this event titled "2019 Heroes Hunt Registration (please print form & send to host)".
