Hunting - Region 7
Monday, October 15, 2012
Legally licensed youngsters, 12-15 years old, will be able to hunt deer October 18-19 again this year.
During those two days, youth hunters with a general or deer B license may take deer species and sex that are available to the general public on the first day of the general firearm season in the specific hunting district the youth is hunting.
Youth hunters are defined as legally licensed hunters 12 to15 year of age and legally licensed 11-year olds who will reach 12 years of age by January 16, 2013. A non-hunting adult at least 18 years of age must accompany the youth hunter in the field.
Shooting hours, hunter education requirements and all other regulations that apply to the regular deer firearm season apply to the youth two-day deer season.
The youth hunt is for deer only.
The deer and elk general seasons open on Saturday, Oct. 20.
