Young hunters experienced success at the annual youth pheasant hunt Sept. 19-20 at the Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area.

The 75 hunters participating, all age 17 and younger, took 76 pheasants and three quail during the two-day hunt, according to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Many of the pheasants taken were among the 212 released Sept. 18 at Ladd Marsh. The Oregon Hunters Association and the Oregon Department of Fish each paid for 100 of the pheasants, and Les Henderson of Oregon Trail Trader paid for 12.

Chris Parsons of Blue Mountain Taxidermy Studio also helped sponsor the hunt. Parsons offered to donate his services for the mount of one pheasant supplied by a youth. The youth was selected via a drawing, one won by Garret Martens of Union.

All youths at the hunt had to be accompanied by an adult. The youth hunt has been conducted annually at Ladd Marsh since 1991.
