Young hunters and their mentors can enjoy two special hunts together this fall.
A Youth Waterfowl Hunt is set for September 26, the weekend before the opening of the regular
waterfowl season. A Youth Pheasant Hunt is set for both days of the first weekend in October.
The intent of these special youth hunts is to encourage older hunters to concentrate on teaching
youngsters the pleasures, skills, ethics and traditions of hunting.
For the first time this year, a full limit of geese is allowed for the young hunter on the Youth
Waterfowl Hunt day. In the past, the hunt was limited to ducks only.
Rules for the hunt will be included in the waterfowl rules booklet. Rules for the Youth Pheasant Hunt
are found in the 1998-1999 Upland Game Seasons booklet. Both rules booklets are free at license
vendors and Fish and Game offices.
