Default Mentored Youth Question

I thought I heard something about mentored youth hunters applying for their own antlerless tags. I looked at the digest and it still says the same as last year - I can transfer mine to him. Has that changed and not in the book or am I just crazy and imagining things?

Are you talking about PA where you live?

Hey BarnesX.308, I was wondering the same thing.

Yes, PA. I thought I heard they were going to go that way but I've not seen anything in the book about it.

However, last year we could transfer our tag to a mentored youth. That wasn't in the book because the rule changed before they book went to print.

I have no problem giving my kid my doe tag. But, I passed up so many deer last year in early archery because he wasn't with me. I haven't shot a deer with my bow since 2008. My kid just turned 10 and has more deer under his belt than I do over the last few year That's good, though.

As far as I know the rules have not changed. A youth can shoot an anterless deer provided the mentor has a valid anterless tag which he transfers to the youth. There is a bit more as to what you need to do about signing and stating it was transferred etc. I will have to read up on it in case my grandson gets luck enough to shoot one.

My 9 year old shot a doe with me last year. I took out my tag, we filled it out and tagged the deer. As I remember it, he was to fill out the tag. But, there wasn't really anything to fill out. I think it was date, time and maybe township and county. It wasn't much.

BTW Barnes, congrats on your son's successes!
Thanks. I was proud as punch. This was his 2nd deer. It was a 160lb doe. In this picture are the deer, my son, my dad, my dad's buddy and me. My dad was really pumped to see his grandson getting a deer. My dad will be 83 when my son turns 12 so he wasn't sure he'd make it to see the day

As one of the originators of the MY doe tag transfer bill, I got lots of satisfaction when it was passed last year
I want to personally thank you for that. The whole MY thing has brought me my best hunting memories.
