Youth Hunter Skills Camp

This week Sheriff Jayson Richardson announced that the DeSoto Sheriff Youth Hunting Skills Camp has returned for 2023! Here is what you need to know:

  • This will be a ONE day camp, held on July 22nd from 8am-5pm at the DeSoto Sheriff Training Facility in Grand Cane (120 Sprocket Lane)
  • Hunters Ed Certification will NOT be required to attend this camp. On the App form you may be asked for a LDF Hunter Ed number, just put “None” if you do not have one to provide.
  • Ages for this camp will be from 10 – 16 years old as of July 22, 2023.
  • Spots are limited (50), and applicants will be selected on a first-come basis. Overflow will be contacted in the event a spot opens. We will post when spots have been filled, and deactivate the form in the App.
  • Meals and Door Prizes will be provided on the day of camp by Sheriff Richardson and sponsors.
  • Students will have tons of fun learning and training in Scope & Sight Adjustment, Shooting Safety and Stances, Shotgun Skills, Game Trailing, and a host of other things.
  • Although Hunters Ed Certification will not be provided at this camp, a Hunters Ed course was provided by the DeSoto Sheriff’s Office earlier this year, and another will be provided in the Fall (Date TBA)
