Officials to Consider Expanding Montana Youth Hunt
By Jackalope Jordan
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials will listen to public comment Thursday on the merits of expanding the state’s youth hunt.
Currently the hunt includes two days preceding the general season. Hunters ages 12 to 15 and 10 and 11-year-olds in the apprentice program are currently eligible for the youth hunt. The FWP could expand the hunt to four days and allow all hunters under age 18, Montana Untamed reported.
Public comment is open through Jan. 24 and officials will make a final decision in February.
