Youth-only managed hunt requirements
To apply for a youth-only managed hunt, you must be 11 to 15 years old at the time of the hunt.
If you are drawn to participate, you must:
- Purchase a Resident or Nonresident Managed Deer Hunting Permit;
- Be accompanied by an adult mentor (age 18 or older) who is hunter-education certified or exempt, and has a filled or unfilled firearms deer hunting permit; and
- Attend a pre-hunt orientation with your adult mentor if orientation is required.
Please note: Adult mentors born before Jan. 1, 1967, are exempt from the hunter-education requirement.
How to apply
The application process for youth-only managed hunts is the same as for regular Managed Deer Hunts. Please note that youth hunters may apply singly or with one other youth hunter for youth-only hunts, but not as a group. Also, youth who apply for a youth-only managed hunt cannot also apply for a regular managed hunt.
