OUT: Division of Wildlife has two more youth hunts

Young hunters have two more opportunities to get out this fall.

The Colorado Division of Wildlife is offering a youth hunt for cow elk on private land near Meeker on Dec. 6 and 7. Hunters between 12 and 18 years of age are eligible to apply for the limited licenses available.

Application deadline is 5 pm. Friday. Successful applicants will be notified Dec. 1.

Several restrictions apply, including having a valid hunter safety card and not previously participating in a DOW-sponsored youth big-game hunt.

Hunters must be accompanied by a non-hunting parent or guardian. Lodging, meals and transportation are not provided.

Interested hunters should list their name, address, date of birth, hunter safety card number, parent’s name, and daytime and evening phone numbers to DOW Education Coordinator Kathleen Tadvick at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Applicants also must include a short paragraph on why they enjoy hunting and want to participate in the late hunt.

The DOW’s Southwest Region is offering a fall turkey hunt for young hunters under 18 through Nov. 30. Any youngster who did not fill a 2008 regular season license is eligible but must be accompanied by a non-hunting mentor at least 18 years of age. The mentor must have a Colorado Hunter Safety Card.

Separate licenses are not being sold for this late season.

Information and a list of game management units are available at the DOW web site, wildlife.state.co.us.
