Free Bird Hunts for Youth

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) is hosting 14 pheasant hunts for youth (17 and under) during the month of September. Additionally, youth 15 and under have the opportunity to participate in a youth-only waterfowl hunt September 26-27 (before the official opening of waterfowl season in October). All the hunts will include a review of safe hunting practices and most will offer the chance to practice shotgun skills prior to going hunting.

In order to participate in the bird hunts, youth must have passed a certified hunter education class and must be accompanied by an adult (21 and older) who may not hunt during the event. Participants are encouraged to bring their own hunting gear, however, extra blaze orange clothing and eye protection will be available at all events.

New and Old Pheasant Hunters Discuss the Season

Sunday, September 14th, 2008

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is eager to let area pheasant hunters know what’s in store for them this season. Pheasant season opens September 27 and many are interested in understanding which northwest areas have the best potential for a successful hunt.  On Wednesday, September 17, the WDFW will be holding a pheasant hunting meeting at their main office at 2108 Grand Blvd in Vancouver to answer questions about hunting safety, recommended hunting gear and the season’s expectations.

Have a son or daughter interested in game bird hunting?  September 20-21, 2008 has  been designated as youth-only game bird hunting days in the state of Washington.  Hunters under 16 can get a jump on the season during this time and learn hunting basics if needed.  These opportunities are always great ways for families to pass on hunting traditions to the next generation.
