2023 Youth Hunt
Each Fall we take 20 youth on a mentor hunt at Viking Valley Hunt Club.
Join us for our monthly meetings. The Ottertail County Chapter of Pheasants Forever would like to invite all members to attend these meetings. We discuss local habitat projects, youth events, annual banquet or other items related to Pheasants Forever and our local community in Minnesota.
The Otter Tail County PF banquet, our largest fundraiser and most important revenue source, is held in April each year. The evening's festivities include a live auction, silent auction, and a variety of raffles.
Annual Youth Hunts
The future of our sport rely on the efforts of those generations younger than us. To help promote those efforts and educate youth in the importance of what Pheasants Forever, we host an annual hunt, showcasing why our organization is important, but at the same time having some fun with our leaders of tomorrow.
Hunter Safety Courses
While we all like to have fun in the field and chase pheasants for miles, safety is one of the most important aspects. We promote and encourage hunter safety in the field. Hunter education classes show both youth and adults the proper way to hold, maneuver and practice proper gun care. We at the Ottertail County Chapter believe it is essential for kids to become familiar with gun operation and be comfortable with handling their firearm. For more information on our youth hunts, please contact us through our website.

Mentor Hunts with Chapter Members
We pair mentors with inexperienced youth hunters in a hunt for live pheasants in a controlled environment. Participants received shooting tips, dog training instructions and a chance to shoot live pheasants. All of the young hunters learned some of the finer skills of upland game hunting from our staff. Ottertail County Pheasants Forever is honored to carry on the passion for teaching the next generation of hunters.
Forming bonds and friendships in the field, all in the efforts of conservation. From time to time we have members getting together as a group to hunt some pheasants in our great state of Minnesota. Check our collection of photos, from the photos of our members in the field, to our chapter events and hunts. All our chapter group photos can be found here. Even a few photos of our favorite hunting companions chasing some birds.
The Ottertail County Chapter hosts a Chapter social get together at the local sporting clays. Chapter members and their families are cordially invited. This is a great opportunity to meet new friends, enjoy some great food and have some fun shooting sporting clays.
Family Fun Shoots
All women and children will have opportunity to shoot one round (25 shells and clays) of trap for free at these events. Free instruction is available along with use of our firearms. We provide lunch and refreshments so come on out and have some fun.
