    10yo minimum. Must be accompanied by a licensed adult.

    "Junior Hunter" until age 16. Must pass Hunters Safety Course prior to age 16.




    I think that having my daughter go along with me for 5 years BEFORE carrying a gun allowed her to focus on different aspects of the hunt (decoys, camo, blinds, etc.) and learn about proper gun handling before doing it herself.
