Michigan's Youth Hunting Laws Strictest in the Region

By  | 

Perry Ragon is taking his 10-year-old twins, Luke and Cole, to Ohio to hunt this year. He has to because they are too young to hunt deer in Michigan.

He says they've been tracking deer since they were three, and they are very good shots. They are also fluent in all the rules of hunter safety.

But Michigan says 14 is the youngest age a youth should hunt. They site maturity and size. There is a bill before the state legislature that would reduce the age to 12, but it's been stalled since last summer.
