    This bill would require the DNR to establish a 5 day youth pheasant season to start the Saturday before regular season and end on the Wednesday before regular season. The youth hunter would be allowed to take pheasants, quail and partridge.

    Link to the bill: https://www.legis.iowa.gov/legislation/BillBook?ba=SF2212&ga=88

    Referred to the Senate Natural Resources and Environment Committee.

    Would a lot if kids participate in this? Are they going to take school off to pheasant hunt on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday?

    I dont see it affecting anything really. I still see most kids just hunting the weekend like they do now. Dont see the point of it.

    I agree, I don't have a strong opinion on this bill but it seems a little pointless. When I was a kid, I couldn't hardly sleep for a week before the pheasant opener. I doubt i would of had that same excitement for a season that didn't include my dad and uncles brothers etc. .
    If anything, it'll probably just reduce the excitement level for the kids already participating.
