Youth & Disabled Veteran Deer Hunt This Weekend
Saturday and Sunday, September 24th & 25th there will be a special hunting season in Michigan for youth and disabled veterans. A firearm or combination deer hunting license is required to hunt in this special season and veterans must be determined to be 100 percent disabled by the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs. Youth hunters aged 10 to 13 can hunt with firearms on private land only and must have completed hunter training. They also must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.
Young hunters aged 14-16 may hunt both private and public lands with a firearm or archery and crossbow. Those 10-13 can hunt public lands with archery and crossbow equipment. Hunters taking part in this special season are required to have proper licensing. It’s a little confusing, I’ll admit. More details can be found at: www.michigan.gov/hunting
If you plan to hit the woods this weekend, good luck and be safe!
Archery and crossbow deer hunting begins statewide for everybody on October 1st.
