The rule book is correct. In order to give kids maximum opportunity, the license is valid for all the firearm seasons. So, for $14 a kid can hunt 1A-4B and take a deer of either-sex statewide.

I had a question asked me last night abouth a youth hunter, he is 15, does he need an adult to hunt with him, and if so, does the adult need to buy a license if the adult isnt going to hunt? Or can the adult just be with him?

If I'm reading the regs right, at 15 years old the youth does not need a guardian with them at the time of the hunt. Only up through age 13 is that required. See page 36 of the regs.

If a guardian wants to be with the youth even though not required, there are no laws stating the guardian has to be licensed to hunt when the youth has the license and the gun and the guardian is just there to be there. The guardian just can't be armed, and probably needs to have the regulation blaze orange clothing. Of course I could be wrong, there may also be some sort of restrictions on "guiding"... I know there used to be for turkey hunting, and that changed this past year.

As for the youth firearms license, see page 62.

The license is valid in all firearm zones and seasons, except the muzzleloader season.


Here is the DNR contact info from the back of the regs. Probably best to call them regarding a non-licensed guardian with the youth licensed hunter... It'd make for a (Contact Us Please) hunt to find out from the officer that it's illegal and end up with at ticket...

      I believe it is the 49 bridge just a little south of there. Lots of ice chunks coming down.

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
