Local Youth Get First Crack at Pheasants

This weekend youth will get the first crack at pheasants this hunting season as part of the statewide annual youth pheasant and quail hunt. The Division of Wildlife Resources makes sure young hunters have a good chance of getting a bird by not only letting them open the season but by also releasing 1,000 rooster pheasants around the state before the hunt. Locally, pheasants will be released at the Stewart Lake Wildlife Management area south of Jensen, at the Brown’s Park Wildlife Management area northeast of Dutch John, at the Montes Creek Wildlife Management near Roosevelt, and the Kevin Conway Wildlife Management area southwest of Roosevelt. The youth hunt runs October 15th through the 17th and participants must have been 17 years of age or younger on July 31st of this year. For more information, visit www.wildlife.utah.gov.
