Sunday as Youth Day

Sunday as Youth Day

How many guys would support this and help me with this Idea?

Proposal #1 Sunday hunting would be allowed only for youth hunters. Small game of course and maybe other game the DNR would think might not be hurt by the proposal and would help to encourage youth to hunt. All youth hunters would have to be in the presence of an adult or over a certain age.

Proposal #2 Sunday hunting would be allowed only for youth hunters and the adult hunting WITH THEM ONLY, but adults may only hunt small game. This would keep adults from using kids and forcing them to hunt just to let them have another day to hunt deer or something else and then they have to actually spend time with the kids. Also adults can not hunt on Sunday in the while escorting the youth unless the youth is hunting!

or just #3 as any hunting with a youth involved.

I wish they would change it to Youth Week. This would allow for more one on one training and keep the kids interested. Just an opinion I have taken kids out hunting and left my gun or bow at home.

I put this on the MSA web board and a few guys cared but most don't. It's a shame but most guys look at Sunday hunting as If I can't get it I'm not supporting anyone else.

I have lost permission on land for my Son to squirrel hunt as deer hunters think my boy shooting squirrels makes it bad for them hunting deer. Even if we are not on the property at the same time.

Absolutely. I went out deer hunting (Bow) with my son last year who wasn't old enough to hunt. I passed on a nice 5 pointer for another day. It was youth day and the deer clubs used the kids to drive deer. What happened to father and son. My son was sickened by the sight. Not only do I think it is a good idea let me know if there is anything I could do to help. FYI never saw the five pointer again.

I support anything that gets more kids in the field and anything that opens up Sunday hunting, even a little bit.

Bringing kids into the sport is one of the most important things we can do, and the ban on Sunday hunting is one of the greatest roadblocks to bringing them in. Kids have too many things competing for their time to limit hunting to 6 days a week, we will lose them if it doesn't change.

I don't have kids yet but have and will take any kid who wants to go hunting as long as their parents allow it.

We you guys are going to have to call DNR or try and work with MSA on this one. I tried and no one will listen to lonely old me. I also got a lot of flack from older guys about if they can not get it no one is.

We need to encourge youth to go out and I see guys getting so into bow hunting and other persuits that they leave their kids home. My boy is 12 and I tried to get him out last Saturday for duck but he just does not have the pactience to sit still for waterfowl yet. So I cam waiting fopr the 11th when dove is in and he can shoot doves or crows and it will atleast get him out where he does not have to wait as long.

I just wish I saw more kids out.

yeah if every hunter could understand how improtant it is....my dad started to take me deer hunting wen i was 4---i slept most of the time lol...untill he shot a beautiful buck ...i never slept again...so try gettiong your son into somthing like thats comes out with somthing he can be proud of even if he didnt shoot it...try goose hunting...fast pace, big birds, calling, lots of shooting, he might like it. And all it takes is one small but meaningful insident to get them hooked...im now 14 and ever since seeing my dad shoot that big one.. i have killed a even bigger B/C and a bunch of smaller deer, not to forget all the waterfowl...i dont miss a weekend ever....AS far as deer goes my dad saved up and bought me two trofie tags for whyoming (mule deer and anolope) with tripple three outfitters..and its this friday i leave!!...were gunna have a ball im soo siked!

C-N-C,

Great idea, although I have to wonder if the new Governor's administration will be interested in expanding hunting opportunities to Sundays or any other day.

Sunday youth hunts with non-hunting adults would probably be the best compromise- many hunters would get to take their kids out without "giving up" their own opportunities, and lots of kids would spend the day in the field that might not otherwise get to go. Win, win.

As far as a day of rest, etc. I think we are one of the few states left that basically prohibit Sunday hunting, even for waterfowl. But, reread paragraph one- I wouldn't hold my breath.

Of course, if we were serious, we could lobby to make Sunday a youth only fishing day, same argument, and then argue that hunting should follow suite. Think anybody would mind?

I would not try the Sunday as Youth Fishing day. There would be too many enemies on that one.

I just wanted to be able to get kids out when their parent had no excuses not to take them hunting.
