    Default Kids in the drawing?

    Trying to get my head wrapped around this,
    can my 10 year old apply for draw tags without hunter education as long as he is hunting with me?

    From the supplement.


    A hunter must be 10 years of age or older by the starting date of the hunt to obtain a permit. Hunters
    aged 10-17 with Basic Hunter Education certification, or hunters under the age of 10, are allowed to
    hunt on behalf of an adult permit holder, under the direct and immediate supervision of that adult. The
    adult permit holder must be a licensed hunter, 16 or older, and is responsible for ensuring all legal
    requirements are met.


    The way I read it NO, He can hunt your tag as long as he is with you, but without hunter ed he is not eligible for a permit in his name.

    That is how I interpret it.

    must have changed this year. My son is 12, he drew a tag last year without any course.

    I think you are reading it wrong, if you were born after 1/1/86 and are 16 old or older, you must have a hunter ed course for units 7,13,14,15,20

    IF you are under 16 then you must have a course, OR, bue under the direct supervison of someone who is 16 or older AND compleated or the course, OR, born before 1/1/86.

    So, my son is 12, daughter is 11, and boy will be 10 before some of the tags. I dont' have ed class, but I was born well before 1/1/86, SO, as I read it, they can apply for tags and hunt with me.

    Dang straight! With my 4 kids, the family's chances for a primo tag are much improved by putting the little poopers in the mix! Of course, it sure is expensive to outfit them with all the necessities.

    and at ten, he can use his own tag... not the adults. lets you all put in for more tags.
    If you draw (and he's still ten then) he can hunt on your tag-with you suppervising

    This was from Don at Fish and Game, when I checked on putting in for tags for my Godkids

    In addition, the kid doesn't need to be 10 now - just 10 by the start date of the hunt. My nephew drew a tag this year that started on his 10th birthday. We haven't filled it yet (might try one more time), but it's been a good time in the woods with his uncles and came with a bit of success as well.

    Is this true for the Youth Only hunts also?

    I did not ask about those. We won't be applying for any of them.

    I'm curious, which of those comments are you "no commenting about" with your wow comment?

    Perhaps your "no comment" wow comment implies that my children don't deserve to draw a "primo tag"? As if someone who's "of age" has more of a right to a "primo tag" than someone "of age"? That children shouldn't be encouraged to hunt?

    Or perhaps your "no comment" comment takes offense to the fact that hunting gear is expensive for just me, and that its 4x as expensive when I start including children in the mix?

    I think there are some folks here that are very interested in a comment (myself included) ...please enlighten us fabricfan, lets hear it.

    IMO...kids should be encouraged and taught to hunt.

    Perhaps Mr. fabricfan assumes that tlingitwarrior is using his kids to boost his chances of drawing a tag for himself?

    I am all for getting kids involved in hunting or any other real world stuff. Way too many kids are being consumed by virtual reality these days.

    Perhaps Mr. fabricfan was surprised to hear the kids being described as "little poopers"
