Missouri Disabled Sportsmen and the Missouri Department of Conservation will provide track chairs for a pheasant hunt Feb. 17 in Centertown.

Young and mobility-impaired hunters can take part in a pheasant hunt in Cole County on Feb. 17.

The Missouri Department of Conservation and Missouri Disabled Sportsmen will provide hunting dogs, field guides and track chairs for the hunt. Track chairs are wheelchairs fitted with treaded tracks so they can drive on all kinds of terrain, according to a news release from the department.

The 15th annual Batchel & Henry Pheasant Hunt will be at a hunting reserve near Centertown, about halfway between California and Jefferson City on U.S. Route 50. Check-in will begin at 7:30 a.m. and the event is expected to run until sunset. Hunters will shoot clay birds, shoot in a continental-style hunt and hunt birds behind well-trained dogs. They’ll also be able to talk to department employees and eat lunch provided by the department.

Registration for the event is free, but space is limited. You can apply before Jan. 30 at Missouri Disabled Sportsmen’s website or by emailing missouridisabledsportsmen@gmail.com.
