Well, unless you’ve been living under a rock these last five months, you understand life has been anything but normal! We’re trying to make up for lost time and have several events planned including a trap shoot, our youth and ladies outdoor days, and a habitat project near Craig, CO; we hope you consider joining us. In addition, our long time supporters at KB Kennels are giving away a beautiful chocolate lab puppy! Details on all events and the puppy giveaway are below.

Sporting Clays Shoot – Habitat Style!

We will be hosting a sporting clays shoot at Great Guns Sporting on Saturday, August 22, 2020.

However, there is a twist! Some of the clays will be loaded with habitat seed attached to them. When you hit the clay you will scatter the seed, and with a little luck, create habitat in the process.

The proceeds from this shoot will benefit our habitat and outreach programs.

WHERE: Great Guns Sporting 16126 Co. Rd. 96 Nunn, Co. 80648
WHEN: Saturday, August 22, 2020
TIME: 9:00 AM
COST: $50 for adults and $30 for youths 16 and under

This event is for everyone including youth. Prizes will be awarded as follows:

  1. The best adult score
  2. The best youth score
  3. The best adult-youth team score
  4. The best adult score at hitting the habitat clays (these clays will be put is specific traps and are a different color)
  5. The best youth score at hitting the habitat clays.

So come and join us. Contact Stan Barthlama at 970-214-5928 or if you have questions. Registration is not required ahead of time, but if possible, Stan appreciates you letting him know ahead of time.

Habitat Improvement Project Near Craig, CO

That’s right, Pheasants Forever has a great volunteer opportunity on our western slope.

The upcoming wet meadow restoration project using Zeedyk rock structures is scheduled for September 9-12, and will benefit multiple species including sage grouse, mule deer, elk, migratory birds and more. The rock structures are strategically built in wet meadows/drainages within sagebrush rangelands. These structures help naturally heal active erosion due to runoff to improve the habitat for sage grouse and other wildlife.

We will be working alongside Wildlife Restoration Volunteers (WRV), who has the “go-ahead” to proceed with the project following social distancing and limited group size of volunteers per Colorado Dept. of Health & Environment (CDPHE) guidelines. Volunteers will also be split into very small groups to work on site.

For questions about the project and to register, please contact Rebecca Burton (Pheasants Forever/Natural Resources Conservation Service) at (970) 329-3160 or
