Yes it's New!

10- and 11-year-olds can hunt big-game animals without a license or firearms safety certificate, provided they have direct supervision from a parent or guardian who is licensed to take big game.

The rule also requires the parent or guardian use their license to take any big game taken by 10- or 11-year-olds. In the past, children 11 and under could not hunt big game; now that restriction applies to 9-year-olds and under.

Twelve- and 13-year-olds have to have a big-game license, a firearms safety certificate and be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Department of Natural Resources officials say the new rule should be popular among parents who want to take their kids deer hunting. The Minnesota Legislature passed the new rules this spring.

Honestly, it is about time. Just about every state in the south already has this rule. I don't mind giving up my license to my kids. Just make sure your kids are practicing and being extremely safe. Another way to keep them away from the tv and video games!!

A person age 10 or 11 may take big game without license or firearms safety certificate provided the person is under the direct supervision of a parent or guardian where the parent or guardian is within immediate reach, and licensed to take the big game.

The key point in this new regulation to keep in mind "is within immediate reach".

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
