DWR stocking pheasants before hunt

The general season pheasant hunt opens on November 3 and will continue until November 18, except on state and federal land in Carbon, Emery, Grand and San Juan counties, where the extended season runs until Dec. 2. DWR biologists will stock 65 roosters at both Desert Lake and the Huntington game bird farm just before the season opener. Another 65 roosters will be planted at each location just before the second weekend of the hunt. The bag limit is two roosters. Hunters at Desert Lake must use non-toxic shot, even when shooting pheasants. A hunting or combination license is required to hunt pheasants. There is no age limit for hunting upland game in but youth must have hunter education.
