WOODS CROSS — Youth hunters ages 15 and younger will have an opportunity to hunt pheasants on Saturday, Oct. 12.

On that day, a full three weeks prior to the opening pheasant and quail hunt in Utah, youth hunters will get to hunt the birds all by themselves.

Utah hosts its annual youth pheasant and quail hunt on that day, and will be releasing some of the birds early.

Biologists from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources will be releasing up to 700 pheasants on several wildlife management areas, according to a press release sent to the Clipper.

It will be the only day youth hunters will be allowed to hunt the pheasants. The hunt will close until the official start date, set for Saturday, Nov. 2.

To participate in the hunt, hunters must be 15 years old or younger on Oct. 12 and graduate from Utah’s Hunter Education course.

They must also have a hunting license and follow the upland gaming hunting rules.

The rules are available in a guidebook, which can be downloaded at

For more information about the youth pheasant and quail hunt, call DWR’s Salt Lake City office at 801-538-4700.
