The Senate passed two youth hunting bills earlier this week.
Senate Bill 1105, sponsored by Senator Michelle McManus (R-35) will establish an “apprentice” hunting license for minors to be able to hunt with a licensed adult. SB 1105 will now head to the House.
The second bill passed by the Senate is House Bill 5192, sponsored by Representative Scott Hummel (R-93). This legislation will lower the minimum hunting age for a minor. HB 5191 is heading back to the House for concurrence.
Please call your State Representative at (517) 373-0135 and ask him or her to support SB 1105 and HB 5192.
