Youth Doe Hunt Opportunity - Seattle Puget Sound SCI
« on: June 03, 2016, 08:40:31 PM »

This year at our annual Seattle Puget Sound Chapter of Safari Club International Banquet and Auction (February in Lynnwood), our theme was all around youth hunting, we had a special paddle raise just to fund youth hunts.  There were many generous donations by the great people in attendance.  After our successful sponsored youth hunts last year, we decided to go to the same location again.  This year are able to fund up to 10 youth hunters on a doe hunt.

We encourage all interested youth to apply.  The youth hunters last year were all successful and had a great hunt.  Please see below for all the details!




 SEATTLE PUGET SOUND CHAPTER
of Safari Club International
 

Last year the Seattle Puget Sound Chapter of Safari Club International sponsored 4 youth hunters to go on youth doe hunts in Eastern Washington. After the great success this past year, we will be sending up to 10 lucky youth hunters on a deer hunting trip to harvest a whitetail doe in Eastern Washington.

 

This hunt was made possible by generous donations at our annual banquet that is held in February each year.

 

The selected hunters and their parent 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. In 2015, these hunts 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 2016 deer license/tag, and a parent willing to accompany them on the hunt. These hunts will take place during the youth general modern firearm deer season between October 20th-23rd.

 

Lodging and food will not be included but there are hotels and services available 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, 2016. Once all applications are received, they will be reviewed by the SPSC Board Members for approval. The youth hunters that are selected 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

This is a great deal. I sticky'd this. Hopefully a couple of the youth chosen for this are members of the forum and will share stories and pictures of their hunt here in the youth board. Thanks to SCI for making this happen.
:fire.:

" 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

What a great offer.  Thanks for posting.  Hopefully at least one youth from hear wins one of the hunts and shares the experience here for all to see.

Thanks SCI.

So far two youth hunters have applied so start spreading the word. We would like to fill as many of the 10 slots as possible.

The feedback from the kids last year was 100% positive and they all were able to harvest a doe.

Great offers by hoth the SCI and benhuntin. I wish my kids were a little older, but I'm still at least 6 years or so away from getting my kids into hunters ed. Hopefully other parents on this forum take advantage of this opportunity.
