Take aim at Minnesota’s Take-A-Kid Hunting Weekend Sept. 24-25

Ever thought about sharing lunch with a youngster from the
comfort of a warm log on a sunny fall day in the woods?

With the leaves turning gold, red and yellow, Take-A-Kid Hunting
weekend provides the perfect opportunity for adults and kids across
Minnesota to connect in the outdoors.

On Saturday, Sept. 24, and Sunday, Sept. 25, Minnesota residents 18
and older can hunt without a license by bringing along a youth
younger than 16.

“It’s a great time for experienced hunters to focus on their kids
and help them hone outdoor skills,” said Mike Kurre, mentoring
program coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Natural
Resources (DNR). “But it’s an even better opportunity for those who
want to kindle an outdoors interest in their children to get
outside together and talk, listen and learn.”

Adults hunt for free but youth must possess a free small game
license, which is available at any DNR license agent or online at
mndnr.gov/buyalicense. Standard shooting and
possession limits apply.

“Spending quality time in the woods with kids is rewarding,” Kurre
said. “As adults, it’s easy for us to forget that someone somewhere
helped us first discover the outdoors.”

Information about additional youth opportunities is available
online at mndnr.gov/discover.
