Youth Waterfowl and Pheasant Weekend approaches

Montana’s young hunters will have a special treat the weekend of September 21 and 22, when they can take advantage of a statewide youth-only waterfowl and pheasant hunt. Licensed hunters or apprentice hunters, 15 and under, will be able to hunt ducks, mergansers, geese, coots and pheasants statewide on these two days.

The two-day youth hunt is open to:

  • legally licensed 12- to 15-year-olds who have completed Hunter Education and who are accompanied by a non-hunting adult at least 18 years of age;
  • and properly certified and legally licensed apprentice hunters 10-15 years of age who are accompanied by a non-hunting adult “mentor” at least 21 years of age.

All regulations apply. The Canyon Ferry Wildlife Management Area is an exception — only to the youth waterfowl season shooting hours — they will be one-half hour before sunrise to noon.
