Youth Upland Bird Hunting Day November 6
On Saturday, November 6, young hunters (aged 10 through 15 with a valid Youth Hunting License and accompanied by a licensed, non-shooting adult aged 21 years or older) can hunt pheasant, quail and/or chukar partridge on licensed semi-wild or commercial preserves throughout the state. This is a great opportunity for hunters belonging to semi-wild preserves to introduce youth hunters to upland bird hunting in a more relaxed atmosphere.
Hunting hours for the Youth Upland Bird Hunting Day are 8 a.m. to sunset. All game taken on semi-wild or commercial preserves must be properly tagged before transport.
The Take A Kid Hunting Programs provide an excellent opportunity for young hunters to enjoy a day afield in a relaxed setting, and also reinforce the importance of being a safe and responsible hunter. Participants are able to interact with more experienced hunters and mentors and learn valuable skills and ethics from them. This program has become one of the most popular offered by the DEPís Division of Fish and Wildlife and always fills to capacity.
