Pheasant Hunting

Upland 512-219

Tule Lake and Lower Klamath Refuges provide excellent habitat for Ring-necked Pheasants

Tule Lake and Lower Klamath Refuges participate in the state regulated General Pheasant Season each year.  We are not open for the archery-only hunts regulated in California.

Pheasant hunting on Tule Lake and Lower Klamath Refuges can be good, habitat ranges from agricultural stubble fields, ditch banks and upland fields with high vegetation.  The Refuges do not plant pen raised birds, our pheasant population consists of all wild birds. 

Blaze orange and non-toxic ammunition are required on both refuges and the use of a trained hunting dog is strongly recommended. Hunting is allowed 7 days per week with no check in required. 

Hunters may hunt pheasant daily during the State general season from 8 a.m. to state regulated ending shoot time. Please check your State regulation booklets as these times can be different for California and Oregon.  An Annual Recreation pass is required to hunt the area.  All State laws, stamps and regulations apply.
