It’s time for youth deer weekend Oct. 26-27

CONCORD — New Hampshire’s youth deer weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26-27, is the perfect time to take a youngster hunting. This special weekend gives young people age 15 and younger the opportunity to go deer hunting with an adult mentor, without the pressure of competing with thousands of adult hunters.

Accompanying adults must be licensed hunters and are not allowed to carry a firearm.

Prospects for this year’s youth season are good, according to Dan Bergeron, Deer Project Leader for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. New Hampshire’s deer population is healthy and will provide excellent opportunities. In 2012, young hunters took 388 deer during the youth weekend.

Hunting can also help youngsters learn about the environment, conservation, tradition and ethics, Bergeron said.

New Hampshire has offered a special youth deer hunt since 1999. Nonresident youth may participate in New Hampshire’s youth deer weekend only if their state of residence allows New Hampshire youth to participate in its youth deer hunt.
