Check out the details on the new Youth Mentoring Program:
On June 6, 2006, the Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners unanimously approved regulations to establish the Mentored Youth Hunting Program. The objective behind the Mentored Youth Hunting Program is simple and clear: create expanded youth hunting opportunities while maintaining safety afield.
This program provides additional means for youngsters to nurture their early interest in hunting and allows them to take a more active role in those formative trips afield with mentoring adults. The program increases hands-on use of sporting arms and can promote a better understanding and interest in hunting and wildlife conservation that will help assure hunting’s future, as well as reinforce the principles of hunting safely through the close supervision provided by dedicated mentors.
Now, if I can only convince Momma to let me take the little ones out to the woods, I might be able to hunt this year…if I ever buy that license.
