Sheridan - Pheasant season in Area 1, which encompasses much of north central Wyoming, including all of Sheridan and Johnson counties, and Area 11 encompassing all of Campbell County, opened on Nov. 7.

Our local small wild population of pheasants is supplemented with birds raised at the Sheridan Bird Farm. Bird farm personnel travel weekly to release birds on Walk-in Areas, Hunter Management Areas and state and BLM land throughout northern Wyoming. The locations below will be stocked on a regular basis during the season, depending on weather and road conditions.

Please remember that a $15.50 Pheasant Special Management Stamp is required if hunting pheasants on these and other certain properties where birds are stocked. Refer to the 2020 Upland Game Bird, Small Game, Migratory Game Bird and Wild Turkey regulations for additional details.
