Default Youth Season?

Is there still a youth season this year? I'm not sure if Dawson is ready, but he's chomping at the bit to go turkey hunting this year. I think I'm going to let him start shooting the .410 and see if he might be ready. He'll be almost 6 when season comes in.

Heck yeah. Get him started early if he wants to go.

As far as I know, there is still a youth weekend. Week before normal opening weekend.

I remembered that part, but couldn't find if it was still going to happen this year. The regs aren't super clear online.

I've been building points for both of my boys since they were born. Dawson has enough that he could really go anywhere, but I'd rather save them until he gets a little older. Just to make sure he's really ready. For now, we can stomp around my club down here and maybe luck into one.


Side note, I pulled my old .410 single shot out of the closet and cleaned it up. Called Sumtoy about having some work done to it, and then ran across a deal for one already set up for the same money. Should have it next week and it will be a sweet turkey shooter for the kids.

Yep. Pretty much matches the 20 gauge that I hunt with. Seems like a pretty neat setup and I couldn't have the work done to mine any cheaper.

We see the effects of the recoil from him shooting a 12ga before he was 6.
