NH kids getting adult mentors to help them hunt deer
CONCORD — New Hampshire's youth will have the opportunity to hunt deer with an adult mentor.
“The weekend presents a great opportunity to introduce your son or daughter, grandchild, or even a young friend to the joys, excitement, and rewards of deer hunting; all under the careful guidance of an experienced adult,” said Dan Bergeron, Deer Project Leader for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.
The event will take place on Oct. 22 and 23 for all those 15 and younger.
They will be accompanied by an adult who must be a licensed hunter. The adult is also not allow to carry a firearm so they can concentrate on coaching their young companion.
The Granite State has offered a youth deer hunt since 1999. In 2015 young hunters took 391 deer during the youth weekend.
