Youth pheasant hunt coming up soon at Fort Lewis

Joint Base Lewis McChord and Western Washington Pheasant Release Volunteers will be hosting the annual Youth Pheasant Hunt Sept. 24-25.

The Youth Hunt is open to all hunters, age 15 and younger. The hunt will be held in one of the Ft Lewis training areas which are also used as pheasant release sites during the normal season. The exact location will be determined prior to the hunt.

The hunt will be closely regulated for safety and sportsmanship. Volunteers from Western Washington Pheasant Release Program and Pheasants Forever Chapter 257 will provide trained hunting dogs to hunt with the kids who participate. Pheasants Forever will also be providing lunch for all participants.

The volunteers from the Pheasant Release Program and Pheasants Forever hope to interest as many young people as possible in the sport of pheasant hunting. This will be an opportunity for young people to learn about hunting safety, and good sportsmanship.

All hunters will need a valid Washington State hunting license and pheasant harvest card.

In addition to the state’s requirements, all hunters must be registered with the Ft Lewis hunter-registration program which is run by the Northwest Adventure Center. Information on registration requirements is available by calling the Adventure Center at 253-967-8260. For further information please contact Bill Ostrander at 253-847-3979.
