Children Younger Than 10 To Be Allowed To Hunt In Michigan

Hunting is tradition in Michigan.  Now that tradition can start at a younger age.  Legislation signed by Governor Rick Snyder will allow children younger than 10 to hunt.

Current law says a child must be 10 to hunt.  They must be 12 to hunt deer with a firearm.

WZZM.com gives us more details:

The new legislation sets up a mentoring program that would allow children to get licenses earlier.

A mentor would have to be at least 21 with a hunting license and previous experience.

Hunters under 10 could get a license if they meet requirements that would be outlined by a state commission.

The Michigan United Conservation Club says that for every 100 adults who quits hunting in Michigan only 26 youth hunters take their place.  This legislation is expected to increase the number of youth hunters.
