Youth Pheasant Hunting Opportunities

(click for larger version)
11/01/2010 - CHEYENNE Young hunters have numerous opportunities to pursue pheasants in Wyoming in coming weeks with days set aside that are only available for youth hunters.

Some of the more popular youth hunts are for pheasants on Game and Fish Wildlife Habitat Management Areas or hunt units managed and/or stocked with pheasants from Game and Fish bird farms. The popular youth hunts on the Springer Wildlife Habitat Management Area near Yoder just took place in late October, but there are still opportunities for youth hunts in the Glendo Reservoir area. These hunts differ from Springer in that no hunt permit is required for a specific day. Youth hunt days at Glendo are Nov. 7, 14, 21 and 28.

For those in central Wyoming and the Big Horn Basin, there are youth hunts on the Sand Mesa Wildlife Habitat Area near Riverton and the Yellowtail Wildlife Habitat Area near Lovell. The youth hunt day for these areas is Nov. 20. A description of lands where these hunts will take place is included in the current Upland Bird Regulations pamphlet.

Those eligible for these hunts include any youth who has not attained the age of 18 before Oct. 1 of this year. Resident youth under 14 do not need a bird license, but all hunters, regardless of age, must have the pheasant management permit to participate in these hunts. Wyoming does not have a minimum age for bird or small game hunting, but hunter education certification is required of youth, or the Hunter Mentor program may also be an option for those new hunters who have not yet taken a hunter education course. Information on the Hunter Mentor program is available on the Game and Fish Web site http://gf.state.wy.us.

Questions on these hunts can be directed to Game and Fish Regional offices or the Game and Fish headquarters in Cheyenne at (307) 777-4600.
