NAS Whidbey Island offers pheasant hunts

Pheasant hunts for the young and old will be held this month at the NAS Whidbey Island upper game range release site from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Licensed hunters under the age of 16 can hunt Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 24 and 25, and should meet at the site at 8 a.m. Each hunter must be accompanied by an adult of at least 18 years old.

Hunters 65 and older are invited to hunt Monday, Sept. 26, through Friday, Sept. 30.

A NAS Whidbey Island base hunting permit is not required; however, those hunters who do not have a base permit will be required to sign a "Hold Harmless Agreement" which will be available at the site.

The release site is located on Crescent Harbor Road, a half mile east of the Taylor Road intersection.
