Youth hunters will have special opportunities this fall to pursue pheasants in the Buffalo and Story areas.

“This is the first year Game and Fish is having a youth only pheasant hunt on the Bud Love WHMA,” Lynn Jahnke, the wildlife management coordinator for the Sheridan region of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department said. “Game and Fish has youth only pheasant hunts in several other places in Wyoming. They are popular and an excellent way to introduce young people to hunting. We decided to have a hunt on one of the WHMA’s in the Sheridan region.”

Only youth hunters, those under the age of 18, will be allowed to hunt pheasants. The cost to participate is $12.50 for a pheasant special management stamp to hunt and be properly licensed.

Hunters under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult, but the adult is not allowed to take pheasants on the youth hunting days. Youth hunters who participate in these hunts will either need to have successfully completed a Hunter Safety Course or must be enrolled in the Hunter Mentor Program. 

Participants on the Bud Love WHMA are required to wear one piece of fluorescent orange clothing while hunting. There will be no limit on the number of youth hunters allowed at the Bud Love WHMA and they will be allowed to come and go throughout the day.

Hunters entering the Fort Phil Kearny Historic Site are required to have either an annual State Park Permit or pay $2 for a daily use permit.

Hunters using the Historic Site will be required to sign up during business hours to obtain a permission slip prior to hunting.

There will be six permission slips available to hunt in the morning and six in the afternoon of each hunting day

For more information, call the site at 684-7629 to reserve a permission slip.
