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.
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.
