WALLA WALLA-The local chapter of the national conservation organization Blue Mountain Chapter #258 of Pheasants Forever, will hold their 2020 Pheasant Challenge on February 1st and 2nd at the Clyde Shooting Preserve. The preserve is located at 2361 Lyons Ferry Road near Prescott, WA.

This competitive hunting event will be held twice each day at 7 a.m. and noon. Teams of two hunters, with one dog, are limited to ten shells, with a registration fee of $500 ($250 per gun.) Starting times will be assigned to teams with a drawing.

Goals of the hunt:

Five birds are released per team on a 5-acre field. The team has 30 minutes to hunt them. Points are given for the number birds harvested (5 birds max), time remaining on the 30-minute clock (the faster the better), the number of shells each team has left (aiming for 1 shot per bird, so a surplus of 5 shells), and how many retrieves the dog made.

The top three teams will receive a 25 percent pay back of all monies received for the event; first place will be awarded 50 percent, second place receives 35 percent and third place gets 15 percent.

To complete an application form and the accompanying waiver, visit Visa, Mastercard or personal checks are accepted, but must be submitted by January 24th to be eligible. If you have any questions, please contact President, Dan Eveland at 509-529-0500 or by email at
