Hunters reminded to check regulations
Hunters should check hunting regulations for the area they plan to hunt as deer and elk hunting season approaches. Seasons are as follows:
• No youth antlerless elk hunt this year in Region One. Youth hunters must follow the standard regulations for elk in Region One hunting districts.
• Special youth deer hunt: Thursday, Oct. 18, and Friday, Oct. 19. This is for deer only. Youth hunters must be accompanied by a person 18 years of age or older who is not hunting. In this statewide, two-day hunt, youth hunters with a general deer license (A-tag) or deer B-license may take deer species and sex otherwise available on their license the first day of the general firearm season in the specific hunting district. In Region One, it is either sex for whitetail and antlered buck only for mule deer for youth.
• Youth hunters are legally licensed hunters 12-15 years of age, and legally licensed 11-year-olds who will reach 12 years old by Jan. 16.
• Standard deer and elk season gets under way on Saturday, Oct. 20, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 25. Hunting regulations are available at all license outlets and at FWP headquarters.
