OK, can you guys verify I'm interpreting things correctly since it's been years since I took my Hunter's Safety class and the rules have changed...

For my 9 year old, to hunt doves and ducks this year for the first time:

1] He needs a license even though he's 9 and will be hunting with me.
2] He can get an Apprentice License without going thru the H.S. course.
3] No State Wetlands Stamp required because he's under 18.
4] No Federal Migratory Bird Stamp required because he's under 16.
5] He must take the HIP Survey.

So basically all he needs is the Youth Apprentice license and his HIP survey to be legal.

BD,

Call your local Game Officer or District One HQ. It doesn't matter what we think, its what "Johnny Law" thinks.

All of the officers have been really helpful and supportive of youth hunting. Right now, since Hunting season hasn't started, they are more apt to talk.

Thats the way I understand it. My son is 9 also and according to WalMart, he didnt need a state or federal stamp. But, he did need to complete his HIP (even though he just did the hunters education course and had never had a license).

Important things in life.......aren't things. Take a kid hunting or fishing.

I have the book right here. You can get the Apprentice License no more than 3 times in a lifetime. Your child does NOT need the stamps but DOES need the HIP. What is funny is that both the Apprentice License (pre-safety course) and the youth (post safety course) both cost the same. Seems like even the "thought" is right, it still ends up another way for the State to get more money from hunters. I have no problem buying LC's youth license, but why should you pay to let your child "try it" out to see if they enjoy it?

We picked up his license w/ the HIP survey this morning, then we met BigChessie to borrow LittleChessie's youth 20 ga. and headed up to Delaware...

We did a half hour of firearms safety training and dry firing drills, then he shot stationary targets and after that he really wanted to try clays, so we did, and he broke the very first one I threw!!! After that it was all downhill, but he was so excited between the license and shooting that he couldn't figure out what to show mom first when we got home, his very own hunting license, or the color burst target he shot.

Thanks BC and Brad for for letting us borrow the 20. Gavin handles it better than the .410, but he likes the .410 recoil better...we'll see, I told him he can't hunt ducks with the .410 Confused

Good to hear B, Once the 1st bird gets in his face the whole recoil factor will go out the window. lol Do you ever remeber the recoil when you shoot at a goose with 3.5's lol
