A new Bill proposed allows legal guardians to take children hunting year-round

Senator Pete Kelly has proposed a bill that would allow a child's, age 8 to 17, legal guardian to take them hunting year-round in designated big game areas.

The bill's purpose is to offer more opportunites for parents to take their children out hunting where they can quote, "learn about firearm safety and hunting education."

Kelly previously proposed iteration of this bill in 2001, and the latest version was since referred to the Senate Resources and Finance Committees.
