Pheasant Season Opens Today In Marion County

Pheasant season opens up in Marion County on Saturday and it’s always important to remember hunting safety. State Conservation Officer Ken Kenyon tells KNIA/KRLS News that you can never have enough blaze orange on you when you are hunting. He says that at the minimum hunters are required to wear a blaze orange vest, but a lot of times the first thing people see is the top of your head so it’s a good thing to wear a blaze orange hat as well. Kenyon says pheasant numbers are down this year which is due to the rainy spring and summers experienced recently in Marion County.
