Kids Pheasant, Waterfowl Weekend Set for September
Montana’s young hunters are the focus of a special weekend youth waterfowl and pheasant hunting season Sept. 27–28. Legally licensed hunters age 12 through 15 will be able to hunt ducks, mergansers, geese, coots and ring-necked pheasants statewide on these two days.
In addition, youngsters 11 years of age and who will reach age 12 by Jan. 16, 2015, may participate in this hunt with the proper licenses.
A nonhunting adult at least 18 years of age must accompany the young hunters in the field.
There is an exception to the youth waterfowl season at the Canyon Ferry WMA near Helena—shooting hours will extend from one-half hour before sunrise to noon Sept. 27 and 28.
