New Michigan hunting program for kids under 10 to start this year
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan's new hunting program for children will start this year, with licenses on sale starting March 1.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources announced Friday that the Michigan Natural Resources Commission approved the program aimed at introducing children under the age of 10 to hunting and fishing.
It's called the Mentored Youth Hunting program.
A recent law eliminated the minimum hunting age, allowing kids under 10 to hunt with an adult who's at least 21 years old. Under the rules for the new youth program, the adult must have previous hunting experience and possess a valid Michigan hunting license.
A Mentored Youth Hunting license will cost $7.50. Details about hunting rules are posted on the DNR's website.
