New Virginia Hunters Can Win Free Bird Hunt

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), North American Gamebird Association (NAGA) and International Hunter Education Association (IHEA) are sponsoring a program offering new hunters an opportunity to enjoy a bird hunting experience.   Fifty lucky graduates of Virginia's hunter education program will hunt pheasants at no charge through a new program called Explore Wingshooting.

An NSSF press release states:
All hunts are fully guided by professional hunting guides with trained bird dogs. Each hunt will be for a preserve half-day, which is typically three to three and one-half hours. The hunts will include only the student and his or her adult hunting partner.
Virginia requires all youth ages 12-15 to pass a hunter education course before purchasing their first hunting license, as well as all first-time adult hunters.  This is a great way to introduce a new youth hunter, to bird hunting.  If you have never been on an upland game hunt, there is nothing like seeing bird dogs lock up and hold a point on game birds.
