Take a Kid Hunting Weekend begins Saturday
ST. PAUL — Getting youths outdoors in pursuit of squirrels, rabbits and other small game is the focus of Take a Kid Hunting Weekend this Saturday and Sunday.
During the weekend, adult Minnesota residents accompanied by a youth younger than age 16 may hunt small game without a license, although they must comply with open seasons, limits and other regulations.
Hunting small game is a great way to introduce kids to hunting. Kids learn how to search for game signs, properly handle firearms and access hunting land — all without too much time sitting still and being quiet.
