Oregon Youth Hunter Mentoring Bill Scheduled for Hearing!

Monday, April 30, 2007

Please Contact the House Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources Today!

 

Senate Bill 892, the Youth Hunter Mentoring bill has been scheduled for a hearing before the House Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources at 3:00 PM on Thursday, May 3 in Hearing Room D.

 

SB 892 directs the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission to establish a program that permits a youth between the ages of nine and fourteen to hunt big game when in the presence of a mentor.  The mentor must be a licensed hunter 21 years of age or older.  Only one firearm would be permitted and the licensed hunter’s tag may be used by the youth if he or she successfully takes an animal. Youth will be able to participate in this program until they are 14 years of age. At that time they will be required to successfully complete a Hunter Education Program before they may continue to hunt.

 

This is a very important bill aimed at increasing the number of individuals involved in Oregon’s rich hunting tradition.  Please contact the members of the committee today and respectfully urge them to help preserve America’s hunting heritage by SUPPORTING SB 892.  Contact information can be found below.
