Youth Pheasant Hunt - White River Wildlife Area - Tygh Valley

Join us for this special youth only pheasant hunt. This hunt is a great opportunity for new hunters to experience bird hunting for the first time and for more experienced youth to get ready for upcoming hunting season. Youth will have the opportunity to hunt without the competition of adult hunters. At some locations, volunteers with dogs will be available to assist youth hunters.

Hunters age 17 years and younger are eligible to participate while accompanied by an adult 21 years or older, who may not hunt. The supervising adult may not accompany more than one youth hunter.

All participants must attend a safety briefing. Due to concerns over potential spreading of COVID 19 (Coronavirus), we are asking participants to practice social distancing of at least 6 feet (especially between people of different parties). Masks should be worn at check-in, during the safety briefing, and when 6 feet between parties cannot be maintained.

White River check-in will open at 7:00 am both Saturday and Sunday.

Each youth must have in possession:  

  • A Hunter Education completion Certificate OR proof of completion of an online course or workbook (due to COVID the field day requirement has been postponed for the fall 2020 season if no field days are available in your area)
  • Permit for the hunt area (if required)
  • Hunters 12 years or older must have a valid hunting license with an upland game bird validation
  • A blaze orange hat, shooting glasses (eye protection) and vest must be worn by all participants, including adults.

 Have youth login to their ODFW Youth account and find the Youth Pheasant Hunts in the Product Catalog, under categories Outdoor Skills (top left dropdown)

OR - an adult can register the youth for the hunt under the group purchasing function.
