Deer Hunters as Young as 10 Able to Start Hunting Today in Michigan
This year with a new Michigan law, youngsters as young as 10 will be out in the fields hunting, with a guardian. One youngster, Zeke Richmond is excited, he has been working with his grandfather, Vic Youmans, all summer on his shooting. "I'm just kinda getting more excited each day because it's getting closer," Zeke said, adding that his goal this season is simple. "Just come home with a big, nice buck!" Vic says he will keep a close eye on the boy, and has made sure that Zeke knows what he is doing, and is able to control the firearm. Zeke is going with his cousin, and Vic has worked with both of his grandchildren. Vic said he started hunting when he was 13, and there was no age limit back then.
The new law specifies that hunters 17 and under be accompanied by a guardian. Those 13 and younger can only hunt on private land. Zeke will be hunting on land across from his grandfather's in Belding. Wishing all hunters a safe and successful hunt. From WoodTV8.com.
