Pheasant are headed to two locations in the Panhandle from Oct. through December

Whether you are a new hunter or a seasoned veteran, pheasant hunting opportunity in 2021 will not disappoint!

Sometimes it can be challenging to introduce the sport of hunting to a youth or an adult that has never hunted.  Pheasant hunts are the perfect gateway opportunity as they are active, fun and often result in shooting opportunity and success.  Get out and give it a try!

Statewide, youth ages 17 years and younger with an Idaho hunting license can participate in the youth-only pheasant hunt from Oct. 2-8 at 24 locations across the state. 

They will need to be accompanied by a licensed adult that is 18 years or older, but they do not need an Upland Game Bird Permit to hunt where birds are stocked.  All hunters must wear hunter orange above the waist while hunting during pheasant season.

Young hunters who have never had a hunting license and have not taken hunter education can still participate in the hunt through Idaho’s Hunting Passport Program.

For more, check out this recent press release.

Where pheasant are headed and when

Pheasant will be stocked at two locations in the Panhandle:  Boundary-Smith Creek WMA and the Lane Marsh parcel on Coeur d’Alene River WMA.

Approximately 50 pheasants will be stocked weekly at each WMA beginning the week of Oct. 3 and ending the week of Dec. 26 for a total of 700 pheasants at each WMA for the year.

Please note that at both locations there are small, naturalized pheasant populations.  As such, it is possible hunters may encounter hen pheasant, which are illegal to harvest.

Boundary-Smith Creek WMA

Located at the Idaho-British Columbia border, the Boundary-Smith Creek WMA is in the breathtaking Kootenai River Valley.  The WMA is characterized by just over 2,000 acres of public land, and it includes both wetland, forested and upland habitat.

Grizzly bears often frequent the WMA, so hunters should be aware and carry bear spray or other bear deterrent. 

All of the WMA is open to hunting, but there is no shooting allowed within 100 yards of the WMA headquarters located at the northeastern-most corner of the WMA.

For the youth hunt, pheasants will only be released in the northern field between the large wetland cell 3 and the Kootenai River, just south of the WMA headquarters (see map).  After the youth hunt, all other releases will be scattered throughout the WMA.

Coeur d’Alene River WMA

The CDA River WMA is collection of land parcels along the CDA River from Rose Lake to CDA Lake.  The WMA boasts over 8,500 acres of public land containing wetland, lake, upland and forested habitats.

Although the entire WMA is open to hunting, only the Lane Marsh parcel will be stocked.  Hunters will need an Upland Bird Permit to hunt Lane Marsh parcel, but they can hunt without the permit if outside the Lane Marsh parcel.  

Hunters are reminded that private lands are intermingled with CDA River WMA parcels, so know where you are at all times to avoid unintentionally trespassing.  Also, a reminder that shooting from or across a roadway is unlawful.

Rules you need to know about pheasant hunting in the Panhandle Region

There are two rule sets for hunting pheasants. One rule set applies to hunting pheasant outside of the stocked areas, and the other rule set applies to hunting areas that are stocked by Fish and Game.

The two rule sets are the same, except for bag limit, shooting hours and permit requirements. 

  • If hunting outside the boundaries of stocked areas, hunters can harvest a total of three cock pheasants a day, they can shoot one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset and they do not need an Upland Game Bird Permit.
  • If hunting in the stocked areas, only two cock pheasants can be harvested a day, hunters can shoot from 10 a.m. PST to one-half hour after sunset and they need an Upland Game Bird Permit.

In the Panhandle, resident hunters ages 18 and older can begin hunting pheasant on Oct. 9 and can continue doing so until Dec. 31.  Nonresident hunters can begin hunting on Oct. 14.

There is no season for hen pheasants.

Hunters are required to wear hunter orange and possess an Idaho hunting license.

For full rules, take a look at pages 11-13 of the 2020-21 Idaho Upland Game, Turkey and Furbearer rules book.

Coinhako, Singapore’s leading crypto platform, jumps into first Ethereum funded esports sponsorship with team ALMGHTY

SINGAPORE, August 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Singapore’s leading cryptocurrency trading platform Coinhako is getting into esports, with a sponsorship for Mobile Legends team ALMGHTY, an up-and-coming Singapore esports squad. Approximately half of the sponsorship value is paid in Ethereum, the world’s second largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. This marks the first cryptocurrency funded esports sponsorship in Singapore. The sponsorship will run from July 2021 until the next esports cycle in July 2022.ALMGHTY’s Mobile Legends squad includes five talented Singaporean youth: 17-year old Gerrard Ng Zheng Wei(Nexqt); 18-year old Javier Tan (Sky); 19-year old Chai Mun Jun (Jun); 22-year old Foo Jieyu (Risen); and 17-year old Randall Tay Guan Pin (Bush). Each member of the esteemed e-sports brand has displayed exceptional talent in professional esports settings. They also enjoy a dedicated regional social media and live streaming following as a group, with more than 11 million fans in Southeast Asia alone.

“The decision to embark on the first cryptocurrency funded sponsorship in esports, and the first by a crypto firm in Singapore, wasn’t a difficult one to make as it merges two of the hottest topics of 2021, i.e. cryptocurrencies and e-sports. Furthermore, as a homegrown company, we believe in supporting local talents which make Singapore proud on the regional stage. The multi-talented ALMGHTY squad certainly embodies these elements and Coinhako is excited to embark on this sponsorship with ALMGHTY,” said Yusho Liu, Cofounder & CEO, Coinhako.

“As we continue to move forward in our mission of making cryptocurrencies accessible throughout Asia, this sponsorship will provide a boost in reaching a younger, mobile-first generation, and raising awareness through talented players in Singapore’s gaming industry,” concluded Yusho.

ALMGHTY which placed fourth in Singapore’s Mobile Legends Bang Bang Professional League (MPL) in early May this year, is set to conquer Southeast Asia’s gaming scene. They are signed up for several national and regional competitions, including MPL Singapore Season 2 (August 2021), MPL Invitationals (Q4 2021), and the SEA Games 2021 Qualifier.

ALMGHTY is managed by global digital talent and marketing group Gushcloud International and its gaming talent management unit, Nixgen Entertainment.

“ALMGHTY is proud to welcome Coinhako onboard as our first cryptocurrency sponsor in Singapore. Gaming and cryptocurrency share a lot of similarities, with a heavily tech-driven user base. In line with Coinhako’s position as the Lion City’s leading crypto trading platform, the ALMGHTY team is equally driven to emerge as winners, together reaching a younger audience base,” said Joanne Liew, Chief Studios & Entertainment Officer from Gushcloud.

Having recently announced a 500 per cent increase in trading volume for the first five months of 2021, Coinhako has seen booming interest from millennials, noting the need to further instill crypto confidence in a wider demographic through channels that appeal to individual interests. With the increasing synergy between crypto and e-sports, Coinhako believes this collaborative partnership will help in engaging with a younger audience.

The sponsorship will see ALMGHTY leverage the large regional fanbases of their players on social media to drive Coinhako’s presence throughout Southeast Asia. This will cover Twitch streams, Facebook and Instagram content by the ALMGHTY team and players. The official FY 21/22 ALMGHTY jersey for the players will also sport the Coinhako logo.

Collaborations between cryptocurrency giants and the sports industry have risen in popularity over the past few months, including Coinbase and CS:GO, UFC and Crypto.com, and many more.

These collaborations continue to play an important role in closing the trust gap among a more mainstream demographic, making crypto trading accessible and appealing to everyone and anyone.
