The Pennsylvania Game Commission will supply about 1,800 pheasants to 26 clubs throughout the state that will host junior hunts.
“The only two stipulations for clubs to be eligible to receive Game Commission birds are that these hunts must have registration open to the public and must be held on public lands or private lands enrolled in the Game Commission’s Hunter Access Program,” Game Commission executive director Carl Roe said.
Junior hunters must be 12 to 16 and have successfully completed a Hunter-Trapper education course. They are not required to buy a license but must meet blaze orange regulations.
