PF Banquets

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of bringing my 12 year old son to the pheasants forever banquet this year and I'm curious what people think of it being a good idea or a bad idea? Thanks.

I have been to many different chapter banquets and have seen younger kids and wives there. Nothing wrong with that at all. I do believe that we need to get the younger ones more involved in the fundraising and not just the hunting.

PF has a kids program for the younger ones as they want them to get involved.

I would definetly bring him with. My dad started bringing me to the local DU banquet with him when I was about 13-14. I loved going, just getting to see all the guns and other stuff at the banquet was awesome. I'm 26 now and we still go to the DU banquet every year together.

The Banquet should have a Ringnecks price for the meal and membership. Sometimes there will be special drawings for the youth and opportunities to win guns and other neat stuff. they can be expensive depending how many raffles you do, but it goes to a great cause!!

For the Anoka County PF banquet (March 10) we have a special drawing for only the youth (and each youth can only buy 1 ticket). As well, we give each kid who attends a $25-$30 item and some other smaller items just for coming. We lose money on the kids, but feel it is worth it to get them involved.

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
