Utah Proposes Lower Minimum Age for Big Game Hunting
Good all states need to lower to the minium age it will only help in hunter recruitment. I personally would like to see the age be set at 10 years old with regulations such as a youth only season. I see no noreason to put a age limit in allowing a youth to hunt when they have to hunt with an adult any way and pass a hunting safety course.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
