DWR Still to Release Thousands of Pheasants

The initial flurry of the pheasant hunt has died down but the commitment of the Division of Wildlife Resources to keep Utah stocked for hunters has not. Utah’s pheasant hunt runs until December 4th on state and federal lands as well as Walk-In Access properties. According to Upland Game Coordinator Jason Robinson, birds will continue to be released right up until the end of the hunt. “If you haven’t made it out yet,” shares Robinson, “plan on getting out before the season ends. Plenty of pheasants will be available.” A few things to pay attention too, however, is where you are hunting. On 13 of the 56 areas where pheasants are being released, hunters must use nontoxic shot. Lead shot is not allowed. Robinson also emphasizes that hunters need to wear plenty of hunter orange. For details on all the rules, visit www.wildlife.utah.gov.
