Title: Hunting License Program and Firearms Age Restriction

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that allows a minor child to hunt if they are accompanied by a parent, guardian or someone authorized by the parent or guardian who is 17 years or older and has a hunting license or if the child is on the parent or guardian’s personal residence. Minor children under the age of 14 are only allowed to hunt on private property and under the supervision of a parent or guardian.
