Youth pheasant hunts to take place in fall

A chance to hunt ring-necked pheasants with other young hunters awaits 12 to 15 year olds who sign up for one of five special youth pheasant hunts this fall.

"We're holding these hunts to increase the interest young people have in upland game hunting and wildlife conservation," said Dean Mitchell, upland game coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources.

All that recent 12- to 15-year-old Hunter Education course graduates have to do is complete an application and write a one-paragraph essay on:

"I want to continue the Utah upland game hunting tradition because... " or, "I would like to start my own upland game hunting tradition because..."

Completed applications and essays must be postmarked on or before Sept. 7 to be considered for one of the hunts.
