Exciting news for kids who hunt

Post by Pydpiper » Thu Feb 14, 2008 7:25 am

My son subscribes to a magazine called "Extreme Jakes", a hunting magazine designed for kids. Anyhow, it says the MNR is launching a special spring season for youths, the date is yet to be announced for Ontario.
Most Provence's (as well as many states) are doing this, what makes Ontario different is that the hunt is not limited to bearded turkeys, looks like hens are going to be fair game too.
What an excellent way to introduce kids to a sport, give them their own season and at the same time start cutting down the numbers of the hens.
I highly doubt they will interrupt the normal season to do this, so it looks like our MNR has found a way to reduce numbers, introduce kids to a sport all at the same time. Bravo!
If you are not willing to learn, nobody can help you, if you are willing, nobody can stop you.
