(KMHL) — The Minnesota pheasant hunting season opens at 9:00AM this Saturday, October 15th. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources remind hunters to check regulations before they head out to the field. Pheasant hunters ages 16-64 must purchase a small game license and pheasant stamp. Also, all pheasant hunters must wear at least one visible article of clothing above the waist that is blaze orange or pink.

Bag and possession limits, pheasant transportation requirements, a hunting prospects map and more information are available on the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources pheasant hunting page.

Anyone curious about learning how to hunt pheasants can watch a recorded DNR webinar about pheasant hunting strategies, techniques and how to get started, on the DNR website.
