Default Looking For Two Michigan Youth Hunters

Michigan Youth Hunt 2006
MICHIGAN YOUTH HUNT
2006

We are looking to take two Youth Hunters on the Michigan Youth Hunt this year 2006. You are responsible for getting here, license, food and lodging. Must have not shot a deer before.

If you don’t have a rifle, I have a youth model 243 savage, bolt action with a 3x9 scope. I will provide the ammo to go with the gun! We also have another gun and ammo available if the other hunter does not have a gun.

This is a rifle hunt only, the hunt is always on the weekend, and is for 2 days only. You must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. You must be between the ages of 14-16 at the time of the hunt. Normally, the last weekend in September.

There is no cost (zero) for the actual hunt, usage of the rifle or ammo. The only cost you will have will be transportation, food, lodging, and your tag.

We will be hunting in many different areas, some private land and some state land. Last years hunter harvested a very nice 8 point.

Here is a copy of last years regulations.
2005 Youth Firearm Deer Season
There is a youth firearm deer season on September 24-25, 2005 on all lands in Michigan. Youths 12-16 years of age may take one deer during this special two-day season or one antlerless deer if the youth obtained an antlerless license or possesses a DMU permit. Youths 12 and 13 years of age cannot hunt deer with a firearm and are restricted to archery-only hunting with a combination or antlerless license.
A deer license authorizing the youth to take a deer with a firearm (regular, combination,) including antlerless license, or DMA permits, may be used if issued for the area/land upon which hunting. The youth must be accompanied by an adult at least 18 years of age or older. An adult accompanying a youth firearm deer hunter cannot possess or carry a firearm or bow and arrow and does not need a deer hunting license. Hunters may not use bait during this season. All youth hunters are required to wear Hunter Orange. Archery licenses are not valid during this season.

Here is a current list of sponsors that are making this hunt happen.

I am a youth, live in Michigan, and have shot several deer. What is the point of this hunt, and what are you trying to get across. Just an oppurtunity?

No catches here, totally free. Reason for doing this hunt, to share the outdoor experience with a new hunter or a hunter who has never harvested a deer. Doe permits are available over the counter for the youth hunters also. Buck or Doe, it's to the woods we go!





Special Deer Season Planned for Youth
Contact: Tom Oliver 517-373-1263
Agency: Natural Resources




September 19, 2005
The Department of Natural Resources encourages all young hunters ages 12-16 to participate in the special youth firearm deer season scheduled statewide Sept. 24-25. A youth, properly licensed to take a white-tailed deer with a firearm, is allowed to take one deer during this two-day hunt.
This is the sixth year for the youth-only hunt in Michigan. During the first youth hunt in 2000, an estimated 14,000 youths participated. Approximately 20,000 youngsters participated in the 2004 youth firearm deer season, harvesting over 6,000 deer, about one percent of the total 2004 white-tailed deer harvest.
Youth-only hunts have been established across the U.S. in recent years in response to concerns about the declining national trend in hunter numbers. Such hunts are an opportunity to provide beginning hunters with training and mentoring, helping them develop interest, skills and firearm safety awareness.
"Mentoring is a vital component of the youth hunting program," said DNR Director Rebecca Humphries. "This special weekend hunt provides mentors the opportunity to teach, share experiences, and help instill in our young people a respect for animals and their habitat."
Young hunters, age 12 and 13, are restricted to using archery equipment and must possess a combination license to take a buck in the weekend hunt. Hunters age 14 to 16 must possess a firearm or combination license and may use a firearm or archery equipment to take a buck. Youths age 12 to 16 may use an antlerless license to take an antlerless deer during this season. The bag limit is one deer for the two day season. Both public and private lands are open to the youth firearm season.
All young hunters participating in this special hunt must be accompanied by an adult at least 18 years of age. The accompanying adult does not need a deer hunting license and is prohibited from carrying a firearm or bow during the special youth firearm deer season. Hunters may not use bait during this season. All youth hunters are required to wear hunter orange.
