With the dog days of summer behind us, hunters can begin to gear up for the most wonderful time of the year, pheasant season! With only a few weeks until season opener, it is time to tune up bird dogs, dust off your blaze orange vests, and purchase your hunting license. The statewide youth-only pheasant season will run from October 7 – October 13 with the Clearwater general season following from October 14 through the month of December. You can find more information regarding seasons and rules in the Idaho Upland Game, Turkey and Furbearer Regulation Book.

Hunters, 18 years of age and older, intending to take advantage of stocked birds by hunting on a pheasant release area will need to purchase an upland game bird permit in addition to their hunting license. Each permit is valid for six rooster with a daily bag limit of two. These permits can be purchased at a regional fish and game office, licensed vendor, online, or by phone (1-800-554-8685).
