Young & New Hunters
Posted 29 April 2011 - 09:13 AM
Any of you have some ideas we can work on?
We may have an opportunity to sit down and discuss a go forward plan sometime in June of this year. Participants are still being rounded up, its all a bit fluid now, but ideas would be a good starting point.....

I would love to see this some how get into the school system so kids had the oppurtunity to talk to hunters and fiherman and be introduced to these great sports
There is what i would like to see doe tags used for first year hunters and kids
Educating people to the true facts is the best approach to growing the numbers of hunters and making sure hunting will be around years to come
Teaching kids to be able to survive god forbid they ever get lost in the woods and not to be scared of the woods
I look forward to your updates as this developes in the future

So, I think that maybe it would be good to set up programs where young people gain an appreciation for, and enjoyment of, the outdoors. Teach them the stuff we learned as kids; what the tracks of animals look like, which side of the tree the moss grows on, how to build a lean-to etc. and then expand that into hunting (and fishing).
Sooo, if you want people 12-15 getting into hunting, start with programs for 8-10 year-olds to learn about the outdoors/camping/nature and then move them into hunting (and fishing) as time moves on.
Of course, the other option is to convince their parents to put down their blackberries and spend some time outdoors with the kids, but that is rant for a different day.

They have this now but possibly the people teaching it are not hunters and don't think much of hunting.
Ya not gonna get any time or instruction spent on the plus side of hunting in that environment.
Slow and steady wins the race

and youth Heritage day... they need to be introduced to the aspects of hunting, conservation, gun safety..etc....at the younger years to generate some sort of interest...
I'd like to see free licensing and education for the youth as well… I’m sure there are some sort of gov’t grants available to be had to do things like this….
I'd much rather see a 14 year old running around the woods with a gun and not on the streets....

--The either sex tag would be a bonus, and myself like someone else said, 16-19 and senior and disabled people should have first crack at it! Sure it is dissapointing when my dad doesnt get a doe tag its much more harder but thats not the point, the point of hunting to me is getting out, enjoying the outdoors and spending time with your friends/parents. But thinking I would much rather see someone who cant even get out and walk the trails and only drive the roads because whether they cant or too old whatever the problem I would rather them have a doe tag than someone who is fully capable of taking the time and baiting or walking.
I think all the guys and galls here have valid points and I think you Ian are on the right track! Koodo's too all of you who are pushing these points!
Thats my rant and 2 cents.

I got a feeling when you do get chance to hunt big game like bears and deer they will be in big trouble
I wish that young people like yourself didn't have to wait until sixten to hunt big game
I remember the wait also and i hope someday others can start at earlier ages
Enjoy the woods
