Pheasant season opener arrives Saturday, October 16th in Minnesota

A sure sign of fall is the arrival of Pheasant season. This year, the season begins Saturday, October 16 at 9am. The Minnesota DNR reminds hunters that they should check regulations before they head out into the field. Hunters ages 16-64 must purchase a small game license and Pheasant stamp to hunt Pheasants in Minnesota, and all Pheasant hunters must wear at least one visible article of clothing above the waist that is blaze orange or pink. The DNR says it is a good idea to check their website for bag and possession limits, Pheasant transportation requirements, a hunting prospects map and more information.
