From field to dinner fare, this workshop will take you through the steps of harvest, cleaning and send you home with some great recipes.

This Family workshop (minimum age of 9) is designed for beginners, and is intended for people who have never hunted or participants that need a refresher and wish to get back into upland game bird hunting.  While this workshop is youth friendly it is appropriate for all ages.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and Luckiamute Valley Pheasants Preserve are pleased to invite you to attend this exciting new upland game bird workshop. You will have a class room session on pheasant hunting and a safety orientation before heading out to the range for target practice and to increase your shotgun shooting skills. Following the range practice we will divide up and each group will be paired with a volunteer guide and dog. This is a one day Family Pheasant Hunting Workshop designed for beginner hunters and will take place near Monmouth, Oregon. Lunch and all equipment (including dogs, shotguns, ammo, and safety gear) will be provided; you will need a valid Oregon hunting license and the upland game bird validation with the upland HIP.  If you do not have a hunting license you may choose to buy a Preserve License.  Preserve licenses will be available on site.  Cost is $6 for residents and $12 for non-resident.  Preserve licenses are good for any preserve for the year but will not allow you to hunt on any other property.

Your registration fee includes lunch and all necessary equipment will be provided. We’ll have 20 gauge shotguns for your use and will provide shells for those shotguns we lend to you. We’ll also have hearing protection, hunter’s orange vests and hats, and eye protection for those who need it.

If you bring your own shotgun please provide the appropriate shells for your own gun, you will need approximately two boxes of trap shooting shells (7-9 shot size), and one box of pheasant loads (4-5 shot size lead) or (2-4 shot steel).

Children age 9-13 are eligible for the Mentored Youth Hunt Program. If a child is 9-13 and is not participating in the Mentored Youth Hunt Program they must have a FREE youth license and Upland Game Bird HIP Validation and have passed a hunter education course.

If your child is age: 14-17 they must have juvenile hunting license ($14.50), Upland Game Bird Validation, the free Upland Game Bird HIP Validation and have passed a hunter education course.

Adults over 18 must have in your possession a valid Oregon Hunting License as well Upland Game Bird Validation and the free Upland Game Bird HIP validation. If you choose not to buy a hunting license you can purchase a preserve permit which is only good for hunting on preserves.
