Youth Pheasant and Quail Season

The 2009 Youth Pheasant and Quail Hunting Season will be open this coming weekend across the State of Kansas. On Saturday and Sunday, public lands walk-in hunting areas and private lands with permission are all open for young people to get the first chance at the upland birds.

According to Mike Nyhoff, Area Manager at the Glen Elder Reservoir Wildlife Area, “The two day youth season, which is conducted the week before the regular season opens, provides youngsters outstanding hunting opportunities and can be a critical factor in getting more youth hunting.”

Youth 16 and younger may hunt under the supervision of an adult 18 years or older. The supervising adult may not hunt and does not need a hunting license. Youth 15 and younger do not need a hunting license or hunter education, however, 16-year old hunters will need a license and hunter education certification. The daily bag limit is two cock pheasants and four quail.

Shooting will begin at 1:00-PM and run until 4:30-PM each day. Shotshells and targets will be provided. Shooters may use their own shotguns but Youth model shotguns will be available for those who don’t have a shotgun.

For more information about the Youth Hunt November 7th and 8th, you can call the Glen Elder Area Office at 545-3345 or log on to their web site [email protected]

About Mike Schrant

Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels. Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the "good old boys".
