Hunts for a pair of causes upcoming in October

A pair of great hunting opportunities for great causes will be back-to-back in October.

The third annual Disabled American Veterans Pheasant Hunt will be held on Oct. 1 at Three Arrows Hunting Preserve near LeRoy, followed the next day on Oct. 2 by the seventh annual Hunt for a Cure.

This year’s DAV Pheasant Hunt is expected to host 60 veterans, who wil get to enjoy a great day of hunting provided by the Mower County Habitat & Pheasants Forever Chapter No. 670.

The hunt will be broken into two flights, both morning and afternoon. The morning hunt will go from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and the second hunt will be 1-4 p.m. Lunch will be served for both flights and a group photo will be taken at 12:30 p.m.

Four trac-chairs for both morning and afternoon hunts will be available for those with mobility challenges.
