After the Springer Session, the regular pheasant season opens on Saturday, November 1, and will run through December 31. Birds will be stocked throughout most of the regular season.

Pheasants will be released at the following areas, as long as adequate cover remains:

  • Springer/Bump Sullivan WHMA
  • Table Mountain WHMA
  • Glendo State Park
  • Goshen County Walk-In Areas 29 and 63

No pheasants will be released on Platte County or Laramie County Walk-In Areas for the 2021 season due to lack of cover caused by ongoing drought conditions.

The Glendo hunt in Hunt Area 9 runs from November 1 through December 31 and will have youth-only hunt days on the following Sundays: November 7, 14, 21, and 28. Birds will be stocked twice a week at Glendo State Park through the middle of December.

Glendo permits are required to hunt pheasants in Hunt Area 9 each Friday, Saturday, and Monday during the open season in November. Glendo permits are not required to hunt pheasants in Hunt Area 9 on other days during the open season.

Hunters are reminded that in addition to appropriate licensing, hunter education requirements, and conservation stamp, a $15.50 pheasant special management permit is also required for all ages for the Springer and Glendo hunts.
