The North Dakota Game and Fish Department invites clubs and organizations to submit an application for the Encouraging Tomorrow’s Hunters program, a grant program developed to assist in the recruitment of the next generation of hunters and shooters.
Last year, several groups conducted youth pheasant and waterfowl hunts, while others sponsored trap and shooting events. More recently, the Bismarck Chapter of the Mule Deer Foundation conducted the second annual M.U.L.E.Y. Day Camp where youth participated in archery and rifle shooting.
Any club or organization interested in conducting a youth hunting or shooting event can get more information, including a grant application, from outreach biologist Pat Lothspeich at (701) 328-6332.
The deadline to apply for a 2009 grant is July 31.
