A new hunting license is on sale now that will allow anyone 16 and older to bypass the hunter education requirement.
The new license allows the teen to hunt under the direct supervision of an adult hunter. The apprentice hunting license includes the habitat fee and is available at a cost of 30- dollars for residents with all others paying 123- dollars. Just be aware that there must be one licensed adult hunter for each apprentice hunter. The resident apprentice license can be used to pursue small game and has the hunting license requirement for deer, turkey licenses and waterfowl stamps.
Those hunting with an apprentice license must shoot and tag their own deer or turkey. The nonresident apprentice license does not allow the hunting of deer or turkey.
