Thursday, October 4, 2012 - 5:28 pm

Junior hunters ages 14-15 will be able to hunt deer during a special youth firearms deer season in the Northern Zone over Columbus Day Weekend, Oct. 6 through 8.

Junior hunters with a big game hunting license will be eligible to take one deer of either sex with a firearm when properly accompanied by a licensed and experienced adult.

While there is pending legislation that may impact future youth hunts, until it has been acted on, DEC's regulations remain in effect.

More details and rules for junior hunters and their mentors are available at www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/46245.html.
