Re: Turkey draws anyone?
TAK,,,,Here's some info on youth hunts, All your kids need is hunters safety.
They can apply for limited entry and if not successful still hunt youth and
general season hunts.........Great place to start kids, My 12 year old has two
toms under his belt already with landowner tags.
pportunities for youth
Utah Admin. Rule R657-62-25 and R657-54-22
This season, young hunters in Utah will have many exciting opportunities to hunt and harvest a wild turkey.
Limited-entry permits for youth
Up to 15 percent of Utah’s turkey
limited-entry permits have been set aside for young hunters.
If you’ll be 15 years of age or younger on Jan. 28, 2010 (the day when results of the turkey drawing are available) you’ll be automatically entered in the youth permit drawing when you apply for your permit.
With a turkey limited-entry permit, you can hunt only the region listed on your permit from April 10–29, 2010. You may not participate in the general-season hunt with a limited-entry permit.
General-season permits and the youth-only hunt
If you’re a youth who obtains a turkey general-season permit, you can participate in Utah’s first Youth Turkey Hunt from April 30 – May 2, 2010. (See page 24 for shooting hours.) This hunt will be restricted to youth who are 15 years of age or younger by Jan. 28, 2010.
No matter what turkey permit a youth obtains, an adult must accompany the young hunter in the field. During the youth hunt, the accompanying adult may not hunt or possess a firearm.
If you do not harvest a turkey during the youth hunt, you can continue to hunt during the turkey general season, which runs from May 3–31, 2010.
Please see page 9 of this guide for more information
