Dumbest thing in history IMO. I pretty much can't stand youth seasons during the regular seasons. Let the kiddies have first crack if you must, but do it before or after the general seasons.

They really need to get the word out on this alot better. Some PSA's on the radio or something. I know its all about revenue $$, but I think this youth season would be supported much better if they let kids use their regular season shotgun permit. $15 for a 2 day tag in October when its usually very warm.....gee, where do I sign up?

I don't mind the youth season being this weekend. I just think it bites that we have to wear blaze orange. I'm hunting on public land that isn't even open to the youth hunt and I still have to look like a pumpkin. It's apublicpark with joggers and hikers... and yet they don't have to wear orange. That seems kind of weird.

We have to do that here in VA... sort of,

If we choose to archery hunt during the General firearms season, we must be pumpkintized. Be it private or Public.

I guess Im in minority in the fact that i FAVOR this rule (Ky has same rules).

I support a youth firearm weekend, KY has two...one in Oct and one in late Dec...gives kids 15 and younger first and last crack at the deer froma gun hunters perspective.

Plus, with all the whacko's out there shooting at sounds and such, i dont care WHERE I am hunting, I want to make sure people can see me when guns are allowed. Just last year or the year before, cant remember exactly, a hunter was shot on his own private ground WHILE wearing hunter orange....just some irresponsible poacher(seems redundant)mistook him for a deer.

Gun hunters are very safe for the most part, but there are a few out there that I dont want to be anywhere near...and if I am, I want them to be good and certain that movement was blaze orange and from a human.

Yea this weather needs to change. Did get to watch a young 6 point a few nights ago chase a few does around a clover field. I guess the little guy didn't realize he wasn't supposed to be doing that for about 3 weeks.
