Applications for the Department of Fish and Game (DFG) special hunts program are now available on DFG’s web site.
The pheasant hunts will be offered at Rancho Jamul Ecological Reserve, San Diego County, and at Peace Valley near Gorman in Los Angeles County.
The program consists of three types of hunts: family hunts that can accommodate 18 hunters, women’s hunts that can accommodate 10 hunters and youth hunts that can accommodate 12 hunters for each of the sessions.
These special hunts are provided by DFG’s Upland Game Bird Special Hunt Program, in cooperation with many volunteer organizations. These hunts are meant to provide a high quality and educational experience that supports hunter education. They also provide an additional public hunting opportunity for upland game birds on both public and private lands.
