Pheasant hunting workshops coming up in Portland, Corvallis

Aug 9, 2016

SALEM, Ore.—ODFW will host three pheasant hunting workshops ideal for families this fall: Sept. 10 and Sept. 11 at Sauvie Island Wildlife Area in Portland and Sept. 17 at EE Wilson Wildlife Area near Corvallis. All the workshops begin at 7 a.m. and end at noon.

These family workshops are open to everyone age 9 and older and are perfect for beginners or people getting back to hunting after an absence. Instructors emphasize safety and ODFW provides all necessary equipment, including firearms, ammunition, eye and ear protection and hunter orange clothing. Trained hunting dogs and guides accompany hunters, increasing participants’ chances of success and allowing them to see these canine athletes at work.

These workshops cost just $52 for adults and $22 for children with paying adult and include lunch. Before the class, participants also need to purchase a 2016 hunting license ($32 for adults/$10 for children) and 2016-17 upland game bird validation ($9 for adults/$4 for kids age 12-17).

Participants are required to take a shotgun skills class before the workshop. ODFW schedules the shotgun skills section on a different day prior to the workshop, so hunters, dogs and handlers can hunt in the morning and be finished before it gets too hot.

Mid-Valley Shooting Clays in Gervais will host a basic shotgun workshop on three days: Aug. 13, Aug. 27 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and Sept. 9  from 4-7 p.m. EE Wilson Wildlife Area will also host a workshop on Sept. 16 from 4-7 p.m. Prior registration for these events is required and the cost is $10.
