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...

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I went to lake osakis and got my butt handed to me. I fished hard and cut holes for deep to shallow. I tried about everything in my bag of tricks to get them gills and crappies to bite. Nothing was working from 2mm jigs with a euro or micro plastic to jigging spoons. For fishing all day I caught one 8 inch bluegill. But I am looking at it as a learning experience and will help me be thankful for those slower days I have. I am going to hit a couple winter kill lakes this weekend. Best of luck to you all
