According to the Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC) Legislative Affairs Manager, Dave Nyberg, Michigan is only replacing 26 of every 100 hunters that leave the field. He believes that the minimum age is the barrier.
MUCC is working on the introduction of a bill that would allow licensed hunters over 21 years old to mentor young hunters under the age of 10.
Currently Michigan only offers a few "Junior" hunting licences to those who are 10, the rest are restricted to those 12 and older. What is the minimum age for hunting in your state?
