just sent my son's essay  :IBCOOL:
Did they get back to you on your son's essay and say how many youth have sent them in yet?

Ross' reply "Thanks for sending me the application for your son. We should be selecting the final group of youth hunters in mid July. I will send you an email and let you know the results! We are still aiming to get 10 total youth out this fall.

We will be in touch,

Ross Woods"

this leads me to believe they still don't have 10 entries   :dunno:

Edit 4:58pm. - they have 8 applications at this time

Thanks all!  I talked to Ross yesterday and we had 7 applications. So yes with the last one we are up to 8.   Still looking for a couple more youth hunters! 

We will keep everyone updated as we approach the cutoff date. 

Can't wait to hear the stories and see the pictures from this years youth hunt.

As of last night we are up to 8 applicants.

Our board approved up to 10 hunts this year but if we get more than 10 applicants I plan to propose to our board that we increase the number of hunts to the number of applicants as long as there are enough availabilities with our contact who runs the hunts for these kids.

Keep 'em coming and thanks for the support here from the HuntWA site

Someone turned on the faucet - up to 17 applicants now (received three today).

Last year we struggled to get 4 youth hunters out and it looks like this year we should hit our goal of 10.

Thanks again to the support from this board.

There are still a few days left to apply

"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. "

Thanks Sattle-Puget Sound Safari Club!

Ding ding ding - the final submission bell has rung.

I received a volley of applications this week, totaling 23 total applicants.

I would like to thank the Hunt WA board again for the bumps and advertising. I said before that last year we only received 4 applicants and to see the applicant number grow six fold is a true testament to the power of social media and word of mouth.

I expect so.

The youth hunters that are selected should expect to be notified sometime in the month of August.

I have fielded a few emails for when the youth hunters will be selected...

The committee to choose the hunters is currently going through each of the applications to make the final selection. Right now the plan is to choose 10 hunters and 2 alternates (in the event one of the chosen cannot go due to scheduling issues). Our committee will then present those names to our Board of Directors for approval at our August board meeting (next week), and I plan to send emails to all of the applicants with the results the following weekend.

Ok folks I just sent off a bunch of emails to all of the applicants (both successful and unsuccessful).

I would like to thank the HuntWA board again for promoting this, I think this helped spread the word.

We selected 10 youth hunters and 2 alternates in the event someone has to back out.

On a related note: I could not find contact information for two of the applicants. If anyone knows the Hopkins or Hinners families (they sent hand written letters so I do not have email contact) could you have them shoot me an email at woods.rossb@gmail.com so I can let them know the results?

Much appreciated, and thanks again.

It was a great time. All involved are first class people. Can't thank them enough. My daughter, (HockeyGirl) will do a write up at some point, once she is caught up on her homework!!

Have to chime in and thank those for the opportunity.  My son got to shoot his first deer, with his great grandpa's 1907 30-06 and his grandpa sitting at his side.  The kid will remember that morning for the rest of his life.
