From the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife - Free youth pheasant hunts around the state in September – Sign up now!
Salem, Oregon - Youth hunters (age 17 and under) can now sign up for free upland bird hunts being planned at 11 locations across the state in September (Baker City, Central Point, Corvallis, Eugene, Irrigon/Umatilla, John Day, Klamath Falls, La Grande, Madras, Portland, The Dalles/Wamic).
ODFW and partners stock pheasants at these special hunts that give youth a head start on regular pheasant seasons, which don’t begin until October. Quail and dove may also be hunted. Volunteers from Oregon Hunters Association and other sportsman groups often bring their trained hunting dogs to guide participants. Some events also begin with a shotgun skills clinic, so participants can practice clay target shooting before hunting.
