Maine: Youth Hunting Bill Scheduled for Hearing Next Week

Please contact members of the IF&W Committee in support of LD 156!

Next Thursday, March 26, the Committee on Inland Fisheries and Wildlife will hold a public hearing on Legislative Document 156, An Act To Lower the Eligibility Age for a Junior Hunting License.  Sponsored by Representative Gary Hilliard (R-Belgrade), LD 156 makes hunting more accessible to the next generation of hunters at a younger age by lowering the minimum eligible age for a junior hunting license from ten to eight years old.

With a steady decrease in the number of hunters, it is critical that measures are taken to actively engage future hunters in the sport.  Please contact members of the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee TODAY and urge them to support Legislative Document 156.  Contact information is provided below.
