Young hunters between the ages of 10 and 17 can apply now for the youth wingshooting clinics and pheasant hunts scheduled for Saturday, March 6 at Pere Marquette State Park in Jersey County and Saturday, March 20 at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex (WSRC) in Randolph County.

All participants in the clinics and hunts will be required to follow all health and safety guidelines issued by the Illinois Department of Public Health, including wearing masks when social distancing cannot be achieved, and carrying and using hand sanitizer. 

The Pere Marquette and WSRC youth clinics and hunts have been popular late winter/early spring additions to the IDNR wingshooting and youth pheasant hunting programs. Most youth pheasant hunting opportunities are offered at IDNR Controlled Pheasant Hunting Areas in the fall or early winter.
