Ten infants purchased hunting licenses this year, the first with no age limit for big game hunters.

The minimum age requirement was previously 10-years-old. Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reported 1,814 licenses were sold to children 9-years-old or younger for mentored hunts, according to an Associated Press article.

A 4-year-old was the youngest hunter to register a kill. Four 5-years-old also filled their tag, though the AP report notes an adult could have pulled the trigger.

In Montana, big game hunters must be 12-years-old by January following the hunting season and complete a hunter’s education course.
