This week, host Bret Amundson follows a youth mentored hunt led by the Lac qui Parle chapter of Pheasants Forever. At the Governor’s Pheasant Opener, near Watson, Minn., viewers are out in the field with young women hunters and watch a high school trap team demonstrate their shooting skills at the new Mills Creek Gun Range in Montevideo, Minn.
Then viewers hit the trail at the Fort Ridgely Equestrian Center in Fairfax, Minn. with owner Sarah Maass and young riders Dana Gasner, Grace Steffl and Emma Christopherson. They are preparing for challenging endurance rides, including the Tevis Cup in California, a competitive 100-mile ride that must be completed in 24 hours.
