DNR hosts ‘Take a Kid Hunting’ weekend
The Minnesota DNR is hosting their “Take a Kid Hunting” weekend this upcoming weekend on September 23rd and 24th. Throughout 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.
The DNR says hunting small game is a great way to introduce kids to the sport of hunting. Kids learn how to search for game sign, properly handle firearms and access hunting land through experience.
Anyone who wants to learn how to hunt can find helpful how-to guides on the Minnesota DNR website plus a recorded webinar about how to get started small game hunting. Small game hunting regulations are available at the Minnesota DNR small game hunting webpage.
