Youth deer-gun season this weekend

The Dayton Daily News is reporting that Ohio's young hunters are getting ready for the third annual youth deer-gun season, which will be held Saturday and Sunday.

From the story:

    The youth-only season is open one-half hour before sunrise to sunset on private and public lands. About 15,000 young hunters are expected to participate. "We've spoken to a lot of parents who are excited about taking their kids deer hunting during the youth season," said Todd Haines, district manager for the Ohio Division of Wildlife in southwest Ohio. "It's a great opportunity for young people to enjoy a hunting season tailored just for them."

    Licensed hunters, 17 years old and younger, must be accompanied by a nonhunting adult.

The newspaper reports that hunters harvested 6,673 deer during the two-day youth season in 2004. The regular deer-gun season is scheduled for Nov. 28 to Dec. 4.
