The Game Fish and Parks department has set the pheasant hunting seasons for the next three years. Chad Switzer is the agency’s wildlife program administrator. He said pheasant hunting for youths, state residents and the traditional pheasant seasons will remain unchanged in the following years.

“The commission took action, basically no change to the current pheasant hunting season structure including season dates and bag limits so they actually set the pheasant hunting seasons for the 2018, 2019, and 2020 hunting seasons," explained Switzer. "So essentially there will be no change to those hunting seasons over the next three years.”

Switzer said the Game Fish & Parks organization is intensely focused on researching pheasant populations to ensure stable hunting conditions in the future.
