HELENA – Montana’s annual youth-only deer hunt is set for Oct. 20-21 this year.

The two-day youth hunt is open to:

  • legally licensed 12 to 15-year-olds who have completed hunter education and who are accompanied by a non-hunting adult at least 18 years of age;
  • and properly certified and legally licensed apprentice hunters 10-15 years of age who are accompanied by a non-hunting adult “mentor” at least 21 years of age.

This hunt is for deer only. All regulations apply. Elk hunting is prohibited.

Young hunters must wear hunter orange and follow all hunting district regulations, which may limit them to certain species or require a special permit.
