Junior Pheasant Hunts

One hundred junior hunters will get a crack at bagging a pair of pheasants in this year's Sacramento River Recreation Area Junior Pheasant Hunt on November 16 and 17 near Bend in northern Tehama County.

The application deadline for the four half-day hunts is October 23. Drawings will be on October 24 with notifications to be sent only to those whose names are drawn.

Sponosored by the DFG, the Shasta County Sportsmens Association and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, each of the two 8 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m.-sunset hunts will permit 25 youths who possess junior hunting licenses to bag up to two rooster pheasants.

Up to four juniors — by California law, those under 16 — may apply together for a hunt. At least one nonhunting adult 18 or older must accompany every two youths who take part in the hunt.

To apply, juniors must submit a standard Postal Service postcard to the DFG in Redding with each hunter's name, mailing address, phone number, birth date, current junior hunting license number and preferred hunts in order of preference. Hunt numbers are to be indicated by writing Sat-1, Sat-2, Sun-3, Sun-4.

Postcards must arrive at the Department of Fish and Game, 601 Locust Street, Redding, CA 96001, by October 23. Information is available at (530) 225-2867 or (530) 597-2201.
