Firearms Safety Training

In conjunction with the Staring Lake Outdoor Center in Eden Prairie, Metro Area Pheasants Forever sponsors a Firearms Safety Certification Program which presents three courses each year, with approximately 24 students in each course. Each course consists of six evening classroom sessions and one half-day field day. The all-volunteer instructor staff, collectively, has hundreds of years of experience handling firearms and are passionate outdoorsmen and women and dedicated conservationists.

Youth Wing Shooting Program

The Metro Chapter Wing Shooting System is specifically designed to pass on the fun and excitement of wing shooting for youth by building FIVE SIMPLE STEPS FOR SUCCESS. Each of the steps moves seamlessly to the next and culminates in hitting more targets. The system is easy to use AND easy to remember! Each student will learn to properly shoot a shotgun. Our five step system will teach students their dominant eye, establish foot position and an appropriate leaning, mount a shotgun, point at a target, concentrate on a target and ultimately break a target. The system is designed to give the student the basics so they feel comfortable carrying and shooting a shotgun before entering a field to hunt. In addition, our program provides the foundation for a student to advance his or her skills in a shooting sports program. Below are our Youth Wing Shooting program dates for 2017: Sunday, May 21 Sunday, July 9 Sunday, August 6 Sunday, September 10 Sunday, October 1 (INVITATION ONLY)

Member Hunts

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.

Beat The Kid Shootout

Metro Area PF invites you to join us each year for a 100 target Sporting Clays Shoot. This is our annual Youth Fundraiser event typically held on a Saturday in May. The proceeds go to funding Metro PF's youth program events; everything from our Youth Wing Shooting Program, to the Fall Mentored Hunts in Central & Western Minnesota, as well as supporting area High School Trap Teams.
