Happy to support!

The Manzano Mountain Gun Club donated $300 toward the purchase of a youth shotgun which was offered as a drawing prize for participants in the Moriarty Rotary Youth Pheasant Hunt. Charlie’s Sporting Goods in Albuquerque picked up the rest of the tab for the shotgun.

The Moriarty Rotary Youth Pheasant Hunt is an annual family event. It occurred this year on Saturday, November 13, at the Shiver Ranch in Stanley. Forty youth participated in the event, and more than 100 volunteers made the day a very satisfying experience for the participants. In addition to the Moriarty Rotary, the hunt was supported by Shorty’s Bar-B-Q, who catered lunch, and the Big Horn Gun Club, whose members assisted at the shooting stations. The NMSU Torrance County 4-H office, including home economist Corina Neish and her family, served breakfast burritos, coffee and cocoa, free of charge. Sudie Teaney of the Torrance County Cooperative Extension Office, and Leslie and Carlos Chavez, Desperados 4-H Club leaders, assisted with registration.

We may be the new kids on the block, but we are happy to have the opportunity to support this fine Torrance County tradition and encourage a new generation to develop shooting and hunting skills.
