Ind. youth deer hunt opens to wider age range

Spencer, Ind. (AP) – Indiana’s annual deer hunt for young
hunters has been expanded to give a larger number of youngsters a
chance to bag a deer.

Past youth deer hunts were open only to those age 15 or

But a new state rule passed in July allows those age 17 or
younger to take part starting with this fall’s Sept. 26-27 youth
deer hunt.

State officials say the change means more young hunters will
have a chance to bag one antlerless deer during the hunts. To take
part, they must be accompanied by an adult and have either a youth
hunting license or an apprentice license.

During last year’s youth hunt, young hunters killed 1,219
antlerless deer.
