Iowa's Youth Pheasant Season is Oct. 19-20
Posted: 10/15/2013

Resident hunters ages 15 and younger may hunt rooster pheasants during the youth pheasant season without having a hunting license, paying the habitat fee or passing a hunter education course.

The youth hunter must be accompanied by an adult 18 years old or older who has a valid hunting license and has paid the habitat fee, if normally required. Only the youth may shoot pheasants.

The season is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. The daily bag limit is one rooster pheasant with a possession limit of two, after the first day.
