On Sept. 22, you can hunt chukar and Hungarian partridge. On Oct. 13, you can hunt pheasant and quail. Jason Robinson, upland game coordinator for the DWR, says holding special youth days—before the birds have been hunted and when adults aren't allowed to hunt—is a great way to get young people interested in hunting. "Hunting upland game is the perfect way to introduce young people to hunting," Robinson says. "Many people who hunt today started out hunting upland game when they were younger." And since adults can't hunt the same species the youth are hunting, it gives adults plenty of time to help young hunters learn about the habitats partridge prefer and how to handle their firearm safely. To participate in the youth hunt, a hunter must be 15 years of age or younger on Sept. 22 and a graduate of Utah's Hunter Education course.
He or she also needs a hunting license. For more informaiton contact the DWR.
