A contest is underway for El Dorado County students aged 12-16 for a 4-night, 3-day pheasant hunt with parent/guardian at R&R Pheasant Hunting Resort (rpheasanthunting.com) in Seneca South Dakota, which is one of only a few Cabela’s certified hunting destinations. This is the fourth year that the contest has taken place. The program goal is to tie 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 is allowed for each report card grading period, and student’s phone number must appear on entry. Deadline for receipt of entries is June 12, 2013. The hunt will take place during September 2013. Contest rules, procedures, and entry boxes are available at Big Horn Gun Shop (530-642-1892), Newtown Firearms (530-626-9945) and Sterra Gun Exchange at 4100 Cameron Park Drive, Ste. 109 (530-672-0202).
