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.

    • Lots of reality here.   Seriously, if we truly want to wipe out CWD, all deer/elk farms need to be wiped out, all natural deer scents need to be banned and taken out of production and every single deer/elk anywhere near a positive CWD infected area needs to be wiped out. Every last one of them! And then, all deer that are found in these areas for at least 10 years need to be destroyed.    Is this a sacrifice the state is willing to make? Not a chance! So we fall to the only other option, we adapt and live with it. 
    • It's always fun to rig up your own custom stuff then paying a bunch of money for things that may not work as well.  Looks like it should do the trick for you!  🙂
    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.   
    • Gettin er done.    I have to take the "T" that the transducer pipe goes through to work so I can open the ID so the pipe can slide freely. 
    • I have a couple Garmin units for my boat. I'm going to also use one for ice fishing. Got it powered up and started playing with the colors schemes I'd like to use. The only one I like so far is with a blue background. But what I found that I like better is the black background the humminbird uses. Maybe Garmin could do an update to add a black mode. Lol. 
    • How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?
    • The ant moat idea seems interesting.  Go to a second had store or a Goodwill type of place and see if you can find a Bundt pan.  Use that and see how things work out.  
    • Could you be a little more specific on this cocktail timing deal? Size matters! 😏  
    • I have been doing whole prime rib on a weber grill since I was 20 years old and they cost 2.99 lb at the long ago defunct Country Club Market in St. Paul. I put the coals on each side for indirect heat and add salt and pepper and garlic. For the garlic I put the fat side up and take a knife and put holes into the fat down to meat. In each hole I put a garlic clove. I don't add any pellets or wood chips for smoke. I just want to taste that beef cooked in owns fat with a few spices but go ahead and add some smoke to it if that is what you want.
