Modeled after Utah’s Youth Day for waterfowl hunting, these hunts are open to all youth who meet the age requirements and who either graduate from Hunter Education or who participate in Utah's Trial Hunting Program. You can read more about these hunts on page 12 of the 2014–2015 Utah Upland Game & Turkey Guidebook.

There may also be a couple of additional hunts offered in areas across the state. Once they are scheduled, those opportunities will be listed below. (See information about the upcoming youth pheasant hunts.)

Pheasant hunts

Southwestern Utah

Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources have partnered to hold two pheasant hunts for 130 qualifying youth and recent hunter education graduates on November 8, 2014. We will release pheasants for the hunt so that hunters will have an increased chance of success. (Please see the 2014–2015 Utah Upland Game & Turkey Guidebook for bag and possession limits.) Because this opportunity is catered towards new and youth hunters, we ask that experienced hunters avoid hunting in the areas listed on November 8.
