OAKLEY — Young Kansas hunters with an interest in upland game hunting can submit an application to participate in the 2015 Kansas Governor's Ringneck Classic.

The hunt will be Nov. 19 to 22 in Goodland. All expenses will be paid — except for license, gun and transportation — for two youth hunters between 12 and 16 years old and their non-hunting chaperones. The two youth selected also will receive a lifetime membership to Pheasants Forever.

To apply, visit www.KansasRingneckClassic.com and click “Youth Hunt,” then “Youth Hunt Application” to download the PDF form. Applications are due Oct. 10.

The Ringneck Classic, which began in 2011, was created as a way to celebrate the rich hunting opportunities in Kansas, particularly for upland game. Proceeds from community events allow the host city to support local and regional programs and organizations.
