SALT LAKE CITY — More than 11,000 pheasants will be released on public hunting areas during Utah’s upcoming pheasant hunt. The hunt opens on Saturday, Nov. 2, but pheasants will be released throughout the hunt.
Greg Sheehan, director of the Division of Wildlife Resources, hopes the hunt will rekindle memories many have of past pheasant hunts in Utah.
“This will also be a great opportunity to introduce new hunters to upland game hunting,” he said. “Plenty of birds will be available to hunt.”
The DWR and Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife worked together to buy the pheasants. The birds will be released in areas that have good pheasant habitat and good access for public hunters. “Birds will be placed on wildlife management areas and walk-in access areas,” says Jason Robinson, upland game coordinator for the DWR.
A map of areas where the birds will be released is available on the state's Department of Natural Resources website, utahdnr.maps.arcgis.com/home/.
Birds will also be released on select walk-in access areas in Box Elder, Cache, Emery, Utah and Wayne counties. More information about the areas is available at www.wildlife.utah.gov/walkinaccess.
