Hunting contest
June 11 is the deadline for a contestfor El Dorado County students aged 12-16 for a 4-night, 3-day pheasant hunt with parent/guardian at R&R Pheasant Hunting Resort in Seneca South Dakota. The goal ties together academic achievement with the enjoyment of the shooting sports, much as school sponsored sports are tied together with required grade averages for participation.  Contest entry consists of a Xerox copy of an official report card with each grade equal to or higher than “B” for that reporting period. One entry allowed for each report card grading period, and student’s phone number must appear on entry. The hunt takes place during September 2014.  Contest rules, procedures, and entry boxes are available at Big Horn Gun Shop (530-642-1892) and Sierra Gun Exchange (530-672-0202). Students who are unable to visit one of the entry box locations can mail their entries to Big Horn Gun Shop, 6271 Pleasant Valley Road, El Dorado, CA 95623. Deadline for receipt of mailed entries is June 12, 2014.
