Youth Pheasant Hunt

Saturday, October 23, 2021 @ 6:30 AM
All Campuses | Hunting ground in New Hartford

Registration closed on Tuesday, Oct 19


There is nothing prettier than watching a bird dog work a field on a sun-drenched Iowa Saturday in the fall. And there are few things more exciting than seeing a cackling rooster pheasant flush from the grass.

Every year the youth of Iowa get the first crack at seeing those flushes and hearing those cackles. If you have a youth in your life, 15 or under, that you think would enjoy and benefit from that experience, reserve your spots and plan to join us for the Orchard Hill Parent/Youth Pheasant Hunt. All youth must be accompanied by an adult. Training, safety info, breakfast, and hunting ground all provided. Some transportation and guns are available if needed.

This is a great opportunity not only to expose kids to something that can be a meaningful lifetime hobby and a great way to experience nature, but also a chance to try hunting without having to have a license or having taken a hunter's safety class. 

The residents-only youth season gives Iowans age 15 and younger the opportunity to hunt for rooster pheasants without purchasing a license, habitat fee or taking hunter education. Youths must hunt under the direct supervision of an adult age 18 or older that has a valid hunting license and habitat fee.

Special youth-only seasons allows young hunters an opportunity for success without pressure or competition from other hunters. Only the youth are allowed shoot pheasants and they may bag one rooster per day.

For ages 12-15. For kids younger than 12 call Mike to discuss.
