WI – HUNTING – Wild Things: Young Guns Get Early Shot at Abundant Whitetails

Blaze orange will join the fiery reds, brilliant yellows, glowing greens and rusty browns of autumn this weekend during Wisconsin’s annual youth gun deer hunt. It’s a chance for licensed hunters age 15 and younger to get an early shot at some venison – and valuable hunting experience – under the watchful eye of an experienced mentor. As a reminder, most hunters are under the blaze clothing requirements during any gun deer season. The only exception is for those who are after waterfowl. Both resident and nonresident youths are eligible to hunt deer Oct. 10-11. The bag limit is one buck with a gun buck deer harvest authorization, plus additional antlerless deer valid for the county and land type (public access or private). The youths must be mentored by a parent, guardian or other adult who has received permission from the hunter’s parent or guardian. For hunters younger than 12 and those who have not yet completed hunter education, the mentor must also be a hunter-education graduate and hold a current hunting license. Adults accompanying youth hunters may possess a bow, crossbow or gun to hunt for a game species that is open at that time, including deer with a bow or crossbow only. An adult may not accompany more than two youth hunters during the youth gun deer hunt at any given time, and those being mentored must be within an arm’s reach at all times. Youths age 11 and younger must have one-to-one mentoring.  [full article]
