Trap Shoot Champion
First Place 2011 Trap Shoot Winner and Defending Champion - Gino Basso!

Hastings Island Hunting Preserve hosted its Eigth Annual Competition Trap Shoot in September 2011. We had a good turnout and the competition was exciting! Out first place winner was Gino Basso, the defending champion from 2008, 2009 and 2010!

Congratulations to Gino for his fourth consecutive championship! His name has been engraved on the perpetual trophy on display in the Clubhouse.

Our compliments to all of the competitors for their involvement in this fun and challenging shoot. We look forward to seeing everyone again next fall.

New Member Orientations
First time members (and returning members who have been inactive for more than two years) are required to attend a New Member Orientation prior to their first hunt at the Club.

We provide free orientations to familiarize new members with the Club, our employees, and the Rules and Regulations they will be expected to follow.

Orientation classes will be held every Saturday and Sunday through December 16, 2012. Orientations begin promptly at 8:00AM, and last approximately 45 minutes.

Remember to sign the class register in order to receive credit for attending. Please be sure to bring your Hunting License if you would like to pick up your Bird Card after you have completed the class.

If you would like to attend an orientation class on a weekday or after the first of January, please call the Club Office to make reservations.

Pheasants Forever Junior Hunt
Hastings Island Hunting Preserve and the Yolo County Pheasants Forever Junior Hunt Program have scheduled a Youth Shoot on January 22, 2011.

Each hunt will be limited to thirty youths, age fifteen or younger, with a valid California Junior Hunting License. Each participant will be assigned a field guide, a dog handler and a trained hunting dog.

The field guide and dog handler will help each junior hunter learn safe, responsible and ethical hunting practices. There will also be classes available on gun cleaning and safety in the field.

Each youth will have an opportunity to develop their shooting skills at the trap range and their hunting skills with live pheasants in a controlled field. After the hunt, the Pheasants Forever volunteers will provide a barbecue lunch and raffle prizes will be awarded.

To reserve these date for your junior hunter, or to volunteer your time and/or dog(s), please contact Pheasants Forever at (916) 359-2368.

Dogs for Sale!
We often have professional hunting dogs and puppies for sale. Please contact the Club Manager, Danielle Earl at (707) 678-3325 for more information.
