Youth Pheasant Hunting Opportunities

Young hunters have numerous opportunities to pursue pheasants in Wyoming in coming weeks with days set aside for special hunts that are only available for youth hunters.

Some of the more popular youth hunts for pheasants are on Game and Fish wildlife habitat management areas or hunt units managed and/or stocked with pheasants from Game and Fish bird farms.

In southeast Wyoming, the hunt on the Springer Wildlife Habitat Management Area near Yoder offers opportunities coming up later this month. The drawing for the Springer hunt has been held, but numerous openings remain for the youth hunt days which will take place Oct. 19 and Oct. 27. Youth hunts are also available in the Glendo Reservoir area some 30 miles north of Wheatland and differ from the Springer hunt in that no hunt permit for a specific day is required.  Youth hunt days at Glendo are Nov. 3, 10, 17, and 24. 

For those in central Wyoming and the Big Horn Basin, there are youth hunts on the Sand Mesa Wildlife Habitat Management Area near Riverton and the Yellowtail Wildlife Habitat Area near Lovell. The youth hunt day for these areas is Nov. 16. A description of lands where these hunts will take place is included in the current Upland Bird Regulations pamphlet.

Those eligible for these hunts include any youth who has not attained the age of 18 before Oct. 1, of this year. Resident youth under 14 do not need a bird license, but all hunters, regardless of age, must have the pheasant management permit to participate in these hunts. Wyoming does not have a minimum age for bird or small game hunting, but hunter education certification is required of youth or the Hunter Mentor program may also be an option for those new hunters who have not yet take a hunter education course. Information on the Hunter Mentor program is available on the Game and Fish website

Shrine Bowl donations

The Board of Directors and John Cundall, the Executive Director, of the Shrine Bowl of Wyoming are pleased to announce the donation of $20,000 to the Shrine Hospital System. The money was raised from the playing of the 40th annual

Wyoming Shrine Bowl All-Star Football Game last June.

The Shrine Hospital system includes 22 hospitals that provides the highest quality care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs within a compassionate, family-centered and collaborative care environment.

Everyone involved with the Shrine Bowl of Wyoming wishes to thank the players, coaches, trainers, parents, game personnel, event personnel, meal - corporate sponsors, transportation people, donors, as well as all the people of the Cowboy State for their help in this very worthwhile cause. It would not be the great game that it is without all of your help.

The 41st Annual game will be played on June 14th, 2014 in Casper and it should be another great event.
