BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota’s two-day youth pheasant season is set for next weekend.

The event allows legally licensed residents and nonresidents ages 15 and younger to hunt roosters statewide.

Resident youth hunters, regardless of age, must possess a fishing, hunting and furbearer certificate and general game and habitat license. Youth ages 12 and older need to have passed a certified hunter education course.

Shooting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. The daily bag limit and all other regulations for the regular pheasant season apply.

An adult at least 18 years of age must accompany the youth hunter in the field. The adult may not carry a firearm.
