Youth pheasant hunt @ Fort Phil Kearny State History Site

STORY — Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site will host the fifth annual Kids’ Pheasant Hunt Nov. 25-26.

The event is an opportunity for families and friends wanting to hunt with young people ages 17 and younger to harvest pheasants, practice safe hunting skills and enjoy the Piney Creek landscape at the historic fort grounds.

Hunters will launch at two times during each day: 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. All parties must include a minimum of one youth hunter and a maximum of one adult hunter. Additional adults are encouraged to accompany the party but will not be allowed to hunt.

Hunters wishing to participate in the Kids’ Hunt are encouraged to call Fort Phil Kearny Interpretive Center at 307-684-7629 to sign up with a staff person or leave a message with desired hunt time and day. Hunters may also call or text 307-620-0331 to register. Birds are released before the event, and space is limited.

The event is an opportunity for adults to demonstrate good hunting practices while making the youth experience a priority.

“Wyoming Game and Fish has been an excellent partner in providing this opportunity for hunters,” said Misty Stoll, Fort Phil Kearny superintendent, in a press release. “We love to keep this weekend open for kids to have the time and space they need to really get after a bird!”

Those wishing to register on the day of the hunt should arrive at 8 a.m. to register for the morning hunt and 12:30 p.m. for the afternoon hunt. All hunters must have valid licenses and conservation stamps.

The cost is $2 per adult for Wyoming residents and $4 per adult for out-of-state hunters. Hunters ages 17 and younger will hunt free. The annual Fort Phil Kearny Kids’ Hunt is made possible by a partnership with Wyoming Game and Fish Department.

‘The Dog Really Did That?’ @ Sheridan Stationery, Books and Gallery
Nov 25 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

SHERIDAN — Two Wyoming writers, including one from Sheridan, will celebrate Small Business Saturday at Sheridan Stationery, Books and Gallery with a book signing Saturday from 1:30-3 p.m.

Both writers are featured in “Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Dog Really Did That?” Bonnie Sargent is a poet, author and writer living in Sheridan; her story is about two basset hounds she rescued and adopted. This is her first story in a “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book.

She will be joined by Casper author and freelance writer, Gayle Irwin. Irwin’s story in the book is her seventh short story in the internationally-known series. Her story, “Jazmine’s Journey,” reflects upon the first transport she conducted for a dog rescue organization. 

Both Sargent and Irwin are members of Wyoming Writers, Inc..

Their appearance in Sheridan coincides with Adopt-a-Senior Pet Month, which occurs annually in November. The writers plan to donate a percentage of book sale proceeds to the Sheridan Dog and Cat Shelter.

Free activity sheets for children, as well as bookmarks, will be given with each book purchase. A drawing for a free children’s story written by Irwin will also take place.

Sheridan Stationery, Books and Gallery is located at 206 N. Main St.
