South Dakota Youth Mentored Hunting Bill Could be Heard Next Week!

Friday, January 25, 2008

House Bill 1263, introduced by State Representative Mike Buckingham (R-33), would help preserve South Dakota’s proud hunting heritage by granting the South Dakota Game Fish and Parks rulemaking authority to establish a youth mentored hunting program for children between ages 10 and 16.  The current minimum hunting age in South Dakota is 12. While licensed youth hunters would still need to take a HuntSafe course, HB 1263 would establish a “try before you buy” program allowing younger kids to experience their first hunts without a license under the direct supervision of a licensed adult.

This bill is part of the
Families Afield Initiative, a cooperative effort between NRA, the National Wild Turkey Federation, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance and National Shooting Sports Foundation. 

The bill has been assigned to the House Agriculture Committee and a hearing could be held as early as next week.  Please contact the members of the Committee today and respectfully urge them to support HB1263.
