Pheasant Hunt (January/February)
In the winter we head north over to Wern Valley Hunt Club in Waukesha in pursuit of one of God’s most rewarding game birds, the Ring-Necked Pheasant. Come join us for a great time of fellowship, great food and fun hunting!
Youth Goose Hunt
If you have a son or daughter that would like to spend a morning in the field with you and watching the sunrise, please let Jim Caughey know and we’ll try our best to make a memorable field goose hunt happen.
Sporting Clay Charity Shoot
We get together to walk the course, have some fun but more importantly to donate some time and dollars to a charity that helps troubled teens in the SE Wisconsin area. Invite you friends and family to this event. Kids are welcome too!
Ice Fishing Contest
Youth & Adults, come join us on the ice as we vie for the most fish caught in a given time period. Enjoy the fellowship & stories that only the ice can bring!
Retriever Training (basic gun dog introduction)
This is a 4-week introduction on Sunday afternoons (free of charge) to the basics of gun dog training (not obedience) for those interested in how to teach your retriever (Labrador, Golden Retriever, Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Curly Coat Retriever, etc…) to be steady to flush, steady to shot, mark single birds, etc...
This is not for older dogs that have never had any training nor is it for pointing breeds. For those interested in further or advanced training, qualified references will be provided. Jim Caughey is an active member and judge for Hunting Retriever Clubs in SE Wisconsin.
All upcoming events will be posted at the Sportsmen booth with handouts/flyers available at all campuses. Please check our booth often or contact Jim Caughey with any questions at 262.993.1643.
If you’re outdoor-minded and would like to get involved in helping at one of our events please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
