2017 Youth Hunt - Seattle Puget Sound SCI
« on: April 22, 2017, 01:41:15 PM »
Hi folks,
Just want to say thank you to everyone who helped promote our youth hunt last year on this forum! We are planning to send another 10 youth hunters on a trip to harvest a whitetail doe this fall. I have pasted the announcement letter below. Feel free to share with anyone that you think might be interested.

Let me know if you have any questions, happy hunting!

Boots (Ross)


2017 Youth Hunt sponsored by SPSC of SCI

Over the past two years the Seattle Puget Sound Chapter of Safari Club International has sponsored 15 youth doe hunts in Eastern Washington, where young hunters were given the opportunity to create memories and experience the thrill of hunting. After the great success these past two years, we will once again be sending up to 10 lucky youth hunters on a deer hunting trip to harvest a whitetail doe in Eastern Washington during the 2017 season.

The hunters and their parent/guardian will be hunting on a private 500 acre ranch in Unit 108 approximately 20 minutes from the town of Colville, WA. There are multiple blinds overlooking alfalfa fields and timbered areas. The hunters will be dropped off and picked up from the blind. Over the past two years these hunts have had a 100% success rate!

The hunts will be for one whitetail doe and all of the field dressing and skinning will be handled by the host.

All interested youth hunters are encouraged to apply. The only requirements are that the youth hunter must have their Washington State Hunter Education Card, a 2017 deer license/tag, and a parent or guardian willing to accompany them on the hunt. These hunts will take place during the modern rifle deer season in October, 2017.

Lodging and food will not be included but hotels and services are available about 20 minutes away in Colville, WA.

To apply, have the youth hunter send a brief essay describing themselves and why they would like to take part in this great opportunity! All applications must be received by July 15, 2017. Please be sure to include the contact information of the parent or guardian in the application.

Once all applications are received, they will be reviewed by a selection of SPSC Members and Board Members for selection. The youth hunters that are chosen should expect to be notified sometime in the month of August.

Send essay applications to:
Ross Woods
8614 4th Pl SE
Everett, WA. 98208

Or email the essay applications to:
woods.rossb@gmail.com

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Please keep spreading the word if you know of anyone who may have a youth hunter interested in this opportunity!

Moderators: would it be possible to remove the "sticky" post from last year's youth hunt at the top of this Deer Hunting forum and replace it with this post for the current year?

Let me know if anyone has questions I would be happy to field them,

Ross

Love these threads!
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

Howdy folks,

We extended the application deadline to AUGUST 1st. There has been a low amount of applications so hopefully this helps get some more. Please continue to spread the word.

Great deal, just to confirm, this is for the youth season Oct 14-15 and 21-22?  I just want to make sure we have the dates right as that is a busy time of year.

Thanks for all of the help on here. The goal was to send 10 youth hunters and we had 11 applicants. At our Board meeting last week we approved to send all 11 hunters on the deer hunt this year.

The applicants should be notified sometime this week,

Look forward to doing this again next year.
