HUNTING – A youth pheasant hunting area stocked with birds raised by volunteers has been designated in the Palouse River area of Idaho.

Hunters age 15 and under who have completed a hunter education course and are accompanied by an adult with a hunting license can hunt the area, said organizer Jim Hagedorn of The Gamebird Foundation.

The group along with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game have planted 150 rooster pheasants in the area, which will be open for youth hunters through December.

The hunters must sign in at the access point. Call for directions (208) 883-3423.
