Youth Pheasant Hunts This Weekend

A special youth hunting season for pheasants will be open statewide this weekend, Oct. 5 and 6. In the southern areas, two and three, the season opens at noon on Saturday, unlike northern Area 1, where it opens one-half hour before sunrise. Regular pheasant seasons will open Oct. 12 in northern Idaho and Oct. 19 in southern Idaho. The youth hunting season is open to all licensed hunters age 15 or younger. All youth hunters must be accompanied by an adult 18 or older. One adult may accompany several youngsters. The adult is not allowed to hunt pheasants. The limit in these seasons is three cock pheasant per day, with six allowed in possession after the first day. Some Wildlife Management Areas will have pheasants stocked for these hunts. Check with regional Fish and Game offices.
