ORPA and ORPA-affiliated clubs offer a few different programs for both novices and experienced hunters.

In October, ORPA sponsors a Pheasant Hunt Challenge at Brier Oak Hunt Club near Bellevue, Ohio. Trophies are awarded to the top three in Flushing Class and Pointing Class. There is a youth category as well.

For youth, several ORPA member clubs provide hunter orientation programs. Every November at the Greene County Fish & Game Club near Xenia, Ohio runs a youth pheasant hunt with support from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). The day begins with a hunter education course, followed by trap shooting, and culminating with a pheasant hunt. For more information visit:  http://www.gcfng.com/youth/youthhunt.html
