SALT LAKE CITY — Teenage hunters will get a chance to bag a buck in Utah next fall.
Hunters age 18 and younger who have passed a hunter education course and have a bow and arrow will qualify for youth archery permits. The permits are valid for Utah’s 2013 general archery buck deer hunt.
Anis Aoude, big game coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources, said giving young hunters this chance doesn’t take anything away from adult hunters. “The youth permits are additional permits,” he said. “They’ll be offered above the regular archery permit cap.”
Aoude said the permits were available in 2011, though. About 450 youths took advantage of the opportunity and bought a permit in 2011.
