Always awesome to see youth getting out there and tagging something!  Nice work, Marcus!

The great State of Montana offers a special 2 day deer only season for youth hunters under the age of 15. Montana FWP couples that with an “apprentice” program which allows hunters (10-11) under the legal age of 12 to hunt accompanied by a non-hunting “mentor”. These programs are fantastic as they generate passion & enthusiasm for the future of our great sport. Marcus Shutey (MT) had an amazing opening day in the field to kick off the 2019 Rifle Season. Congratulations to Marcus and all of the kids whom participated this year. It is truly awe inspiring to watch the range of emotion and appreciation a young hunter has upon harvesting his first big game animal.
