Kids Getting Hooked On Hunting

Kids learned about the basics of hunting and safety at the Grand Forks Gun Club today.

Kids learned about the basics of hunting and safety at the Grand Forks Gun Club today.

About 100 kids attended the first-ever Hooked on Hunting event.

The event focused on duck and goose hunting.

Delta Waterfowl, Cabela's, the Grand Forks Park District, Keith's Lock and Key, Greater Grand Forks Gun Club, and the Wildlife Club worked together to teach kids about duck calling, decoys, bird identification, and hunting equipment.

"Each kid will get to shoot five shots, just basic trap range, just so they have a chance to do some shooting today too. And we'll talk about firearm safety," Delta Waterfowl Volunteer Matt Vanderpan said.

The Grand Forks Park District hopes to have a similar event next year.
