Default From Norway. Were can we hunt in US?

Me and my daughter are from Norway and have plans to discover other country for hunting.
What is the limit of age for hunting in US?
My daughter is now 13 years old.

And what species you're recommend we can hunt for in US and what part of the country give us the best chance to get something and were we can hunt different kind of species?

If you're have some good links of place we can go and contact we be happy for this were the price is not to high.

Here is some video from our hunting in Norway.

If you are more acclimated to cold weather hunting, then the rocky mountains are likely your ticket. I believe at 13 years old, the few states that do have age restrictions are bypassed. I'm not familiar with any hunter education received in norway nor am I familiar with whether it is accepted by our parks and wildlife departments. However http://wildlife.state.co.us/Pages/Home.aspx

These three websites will give you information on Colorado, Montana, and Wyoming regulations (respectively). Due to time constraints you may have to buy 2nd or 3rd season tags over the counter in other states such as Washington State or Oregon.

Perhaps it is stereotyping, but if you are going to bring a 6.5x55 swiss on animals like elk or moose, i'd recommend convincing your guide ahead of time if you use a guiding service. Otherwise, shot placement is still key. Unfortunately, the idea of "bigger is better" blights many American hunters and it is difficult to change their minds without proving it first hand.

Hope it helps.

Many variables to consider. Many states have different rules for minimum age for example in West Virginia there is no min age my son killed his first whitetail at age 10 my daughter at age 12.

A whitetail hunt might very well be the way to go, as they can be found in almost every state and prices for hunts will vary accordingly from a few hundred dollars to thousand depending on what you want.

Bears are an option in many states (guided and unguided, baited or non baited, hounds or no hounds depending on the state). Of course I'm talking black bears, looking at grizzly or browns is a whole different ball game. Pronghorn in the plains is always an option as well, plus the whole Mule deer, elk, moose options in some states as well. My suggestion would be do some research on what animal and part of the country you want to hunt in then let folks know what species/area you want to hunt and you will probably get better info that's more specific to where you are headed.

If you come in the fall you can hunt almost anywhere but most states require a gun safety course. You can do it online from what I hear. Grouse in the upper midwest or deer in Wisconsin. Public land is everywhere in many states. Getting a deer can be tough sometimes though. Wisconsin, Michigan or Minnesota is a good place to hunt deer with a gun and grouse earlier in the years.

First of all, you need to know that each state has its own laws and regulations. The rules can be very different in states right next to each other. For example, your daughter can hunt any game here in Michigan, but that's not necessarily true in every state.

You will also likely need a hunter safety course to get a license. You probably already have one in Norway and it would probably be acceptable here. You would have to ask though.

Then you should decide what you want to hunt and what kind of terrain you want to hunt.

Then people can help you with information as to the best place to go.

Smile What to hunt and where to hunt in the US

Whitetails are probably the best hunt to begin with, since you can find them in almost all states.

Here's an infographic that can be of real help:

My advice is to hunt something different, in a different climate and manner than you normally hunt. I would recommend trying for America's game birds, the Greater and Lesser Prairie Chicken here in Kansas. Especially before they get put on the endangered species list.
