HUACHUCA GOULD’S CHAPTER JAKES DAY

The HUACHUCA GOULD’S CHAPTER hosted a JAKES day for 38 local youths at the Sportsman’s Center on Fort Huachuca in southeastern Arizona on June 18th, 2016. At 5 hands-on teaching stations JAKES learned about rifle safety and marksmanship, clay target shooting, archery equipment and techniques, optics selection and field use, and wildlife conservation. Acquired skills were immediately put into practice on the lake. Experts from Huachuca Mountain Archers and Bowhunters, Arizona Game and Fish Department, and Chapter members led the instruction. A tasty lunch of grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, ice cold watermelon, and refreshments was prepared for the JAKES, their families, and instructors as well. What an enthusiastic group of JAKES! This event was supported by the Arizona State Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation and with fundraising efforts of the Huachuca Gould’s Chapter.
